500px Returns To The iOS App Store

500px Returns To The iOS App Store, but now with more Apple walled-garden compliance.

Toronto’s 500px got its popular photo sharing iPhone app back on the iTunes App Store today, following a takedown that Apple said stemmed from multiple user complaints about pornographic material. The app returns with an age-gate warning, advising that the content in the app is for 17+ audiences, and also adds a new “Report Photo” button to help users quickly tag things they find offensive for potential removal from¬†the¬†network.

I normally give Apple a lot of leeway for their decisions, but some seem just silly. I’m glad they and 500px at least came to an agreement and their (excellent) app is back.
