Well this certainly isn't in the holiday spirit. WOW Tech, the makers of We-Vibe, were informed yesterday that We-Connect was in violation of their policies, as it was 'sexually explicit'. Apparently, this hinged on one of the images included with the app. 

We know that Apple has a long history of sex-negativity regarding their application store, but traditionally, Google has been more permissive. There are appropriate age guidelines on apps, and parental controls available. Wouldn't it make more sense to treat apps like We-Connect as adult-only applications, and simply utilise the technology that prevents minors from using apps like We-Connect, along with all the many hook up and other sexually-oriented apps available?

In the meantime, We-Vibe is working with Google to get the app restored, so for those who have just ordered a We-Connect compatible device - sit tight! Once the alleged offensive images are removed, We-Vibe expects the app will be restored and available again on the Google Play Store within the next couple of days.

If you already have the We-Connect app, this will not remove or prevent use of the app on your device. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us!
