MiKandi revises porn app to follow with Google Glass policy, still banned

Google Glass pornographers was unsuccessful to follow the new restrictions banning their app, the company told FoxNews.com Tuesday night. Revisions  made to the terms of service few hours following the release of  their app.

Seattle company MiKandi released the first pornographic app for Google Glass on Monday, however, Google almost made updates to  its policies to outlaw adult content.

MiKandi was apparently unable to work around Google’s ban, MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams told FoxNews.com Tuesday evening.

According to Adams,to comply with Google’s policy, they made  changes but, when the company tried to re-enable the app, MiKandi discovered its user’s Glass API limit was still at zero, meaning that the company could not push any updates for the app.

"We called Google to see if this meant that our account was completely blocked, but they refused to give us a clear answer," Adams told FoxNews.com.

Mikandi’s  app lets users  share racy content directly with others and look through adult content using Glass, a wearable computer that developers are currently poking and prodding.

The app was meant to send alerts about new content directly to a user’s Glass, just like a news app would. However,  these headlines raised eyebrows and alarm at Google HQ.

On the other hand, Google defended their reason for the ban.

“Our policies make it clear that Glass does not allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sexual acts, or sexually explicit material. Any Glassware that violates this policy will be blocked from appearing on Glass,” a Google spokesman told FoxNews.com.
