Google Play Store tosses third party Reddit app for sexual content
Apple in the past who has removed apps that seemed a little too risque.
The latest word on the whole affair is that Reto Meier from the Android Developer Relations team has contacted Shu and will guide him through the appeal process. This will probably not be the last word on this matter.

So much for Android being the platform with porn apps (in the market anyway). .

This is like blocking a web browser for porn. The developer can't control the content.

I prefer having the Google play store with as least amount of sexual content as possible. Please continue to boot these apps out, Google. Thanks.

If this is the way Google wants it, then Android should remove Craigslist apps. They should remove any internet browsers avaialable on the Play Store. Oh, and also their own browser from the Android OS. Sure, Reddit has tons of inappropriate subreddits, but it's the users' choice to subscribe to these if they choose. This is not the doing of Reddit is Fun devs.
This had better not continue. The point of the Google Market and Google Android itself is the fact that it's users' phone, not the manufacturers' phone.
