According to CNET, Apple has pulled controversial app Bang with Friends from the App Store, after it debuted last week. Titled BWF Official when it was in the App Store, the matching service–which recently surpassed 1 million users–allowed users to connect their Facebook accounts and find friends who were “down to bang” each other.

“We’re working with Apple to figure out exactly why,” a Bang With Friends spokesperson told CNET.

Co-founder Colin Hodge confirmed with Valleywag Apple had removed their app from the App Store. Users can enter their email on the BWF website to get notified when the app will return to the App Store. At this point in time, it appears too early to conclude whether or not Apple was flexing its censorship over the app’s intended service.

Anyone have luck (or get lucky) using this app?

    Just like all those other “dating” type of apps its only Americans on there lol

  • Weird, why was it controversial? There are a slew of other apps in the App Store that are for the same purpose. Take Grindr and Scruff for example, but I don’t think those apps use Facebook to connect. I’m guessing the reason the app was pulled was due to the adult nature of the app and Facebook’s terms of use. Either that or it’s the “friends” part, aren’t most hook-up apps for hooking up with strangers, not friends? 😛
