Windows Phone; it's a hot spot for porn apps

iKamasutra and HD Babes Premium among the offerings.

Microsoft is still trying to find its feet with its Windows Phone platform, which runs across all next-gen Nokia devices, such as the Lumia series.

However, the one thing that the OS will need to survive is apps, according to analysts, which cited a 0.6 per cent market share increase for WinPho just an hour after news that Angry Birds Space would join the platform.

Now, TechCrunch claims WinPho only has big apps such as Facebook and Twitter on offer, while other third party apps are either poor or pornographic.

The report says the lack of decent apps means that Windows Phone Marketplace has become overwhelmed by smut such as iKamasutra, HD Babes Premium and Sexy Bomb, which are all easy to find for adult and underage users alike.

TC, said: "Windows Phone doesn’t have the luxury of massive demand. Microsoft’s mobile platform needs all the apps it can get including the dirty ones.

"However, porn has a place in a mobile platform. If there’s a market for T&A apps (there is), then it would behoove Microsoft and developers to include them. After all, as the age-old saying states, sex sells. But don’t let them sit on top. Make 14- and 40-year old boys at least work a bit to find the steamy material."

Mobile porn is undeniably a lucrative market and Microsoft is clearly all for the content, which is a stark contrast from Apple, which has a strict zero tolerance policy.

Although, it should be noted that Apple came under fire from Chinese citizens for hidden porn apps just last week.
