Google Bans First Google Glass Adult App

The very first porn-related app for Google Glass has been banned by Google, along with any other applications that someone might think of in the future. The application created by software developer MiKandi called "Tits & Glass" allowed Google Glass users to record videos and take pictures of sexual partners and share them with other users of the app who could then rate them.

But the ban may have less to do with being adult and more to do with privacy. Google is already taking heat from lawmakers and privacy advocates who think that the device's ability to capture what is going on around the Google Glass user is a horrible idea. The other concern with this particular app is that it could be used to create "revenge porn" (capturing a sexual act and then posting it online without a participants permission to publicly shame them).

Jesse Adams, the CEO of MiKandi, isn’t ready to give up on his fledgling app:

"Although the app is still live and people are using it, at this point we must make changes to the app in order to comply with the new policies," wrote Adams on his company blog. "Expect to see changes to the application tomorrow."
