Playboy agrees to censor Apple iPad app nudity

Digital issue of Playboy will have no naked ladies.

Hold on, Hef. You still want us to pay £3.20 an issue for this?

Playboy supremo Hugh Hefner has agreed that iPad issues of the world's most famous 'jazz mag' will be nudity free, in order to keep its place on the App Store.

The legendary 'art pamphlet' currently costs £3.20 per issue on the App Store, but in order to adhere to Apple's strict anti-obscenity stance, centrefolds with girls wearing nothing more than a staple, will be replaced with tasteful headshots.

More from the T3 App Chart:
- Best news and magazine apps for iPad
- Best Apps reviewed
- Best travel apps for your summer hols
- Oh, and he's the best of the T3 cover girls

That's sort of like buying an issue of T3 without any gadget news and reviews, just extended features about China's human rights travesties and interviews with Tom Cruise.

The castrating of Playboy is self-appointed global censor Steve Jobs' latest move in his crusade to create a "world free of porn," - something the turtle-necked one reckons we should all be grateful for. And just when the Kelly Brook issue was set to hit shelves too. Nice one, Steve

At least now, all of those folks who have claimed for years that they only buy Playboy for the insightful interviews and quality pensmanship have the chance to put their money where their Playmates were.
