500px the extremely popular photo sharing site/community has had their app removed by Apple from the iTunes App Store.

It seems that Apple’s problem is that the app makes it easy to find nude photos using the search function. The search function isn’t anything new, it’s been in the app since the very beginning. The only thing that changes was that you needed to specifically enable “show nude content” on your account. This was not strict enough for Apple and last night Apple law was enforced.

What’s 500px doing about this, well simple no nude content will be searchable on the iOS platform.
