That was easy: Google Glass gets its first porn app, immediately gets banned

The first Google Glass app for the over-18 audience hit the Glass store, Monday, well before anyone outside of select groups can actually buy Google's new wearable headset.

The cleverly titled Tits and Glass, designed by adult software developer MiKandi, is an app that allows users to view, share and rate adult pictures and video content. The main function of the app, says MiKandi's co-founder Jen McEwen, is for users to upload and share intimate photos. An online website provides access for the many people who don't yet have Glass and are thusly incapable of sharing their own content.

Out of over 10,000 visitors to the site in its first day, just over a dozen were actual Glass owners.

The app is simple to use and is similar to the photo-sharing features of Facebook and YouTube, and the beauty of it, McEwen says, is the immediacy of the upload: "[the images] are fresh...almost semi-live."

Although capturing POV images of yourself is apparently rather tricky, McEwen maintains that the app would be more useful and interesting when used with a partner. The app aims to take advantage of Glass' unique hands-free camera feature, enabling couples to capture images and without having to put a halt to the action.

The Tits and Glass app may make use of some innovative technology, but its future is uncertain as Google continues to update and modify its terms of service for its Glass hardware. When MiKandi began developing the app two weeks ago, they thoroughly reviewed Google's policy for Glass applications to confirm that their product fell within the appropriate guidelines. The app wasn't breaking any rules during the app's development and subsequent release.

This weekend, however, Google changed their policy and put a flat-out ban on all adult content applications.

"We don't allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material," Glass' platform developer polices state after a Saturday update.

According to MiKandi, the application is still live. The service said it didn't receive any emails from Google about the policy changes, but they plan on making alterations to the app by Tuesday to try to keep it within Google's boundaries.

When opened on Glass, a pop-up kindly notifies that "this Glassware has not been reviewed by Google."
