iPod, iPhone feature poll ends, App Store content poll begins

With over 2,600 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll—“Phone calling aside, what’s the most important feature of your iPod or iPhone that you could not live without?”—has ended. Readers could choose between audio or video playback, games, e-mail and web access, other non-game apps, or the camera.

Perhaps signaling a shift in usage patterns for Apple’s portable devices, 45% of readers said e-mail and web access was the most important feature of their iPod or iPhone, followed by audio playback with 36% of the vote. Other non-game apps came in third with 8% of the vote, followed by games with 5%, video playback with 4%, and camera functionality with only 2%. Thanks for all your votes!

Our new poll focuses on sexual content in the App Store—should Apple be banning such content? Should it remove the content altogether, move it into a dedicated “Adult” area, or leave it where it is? Or do you not have an opinion on the matter? Whatever your feelings, our new poll, “Should Apple remove sexual content from the App Store?” lets you answer that question. You can find the iLounge Poll in the left-hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Vote today!

The parental controls are already in place as aren’t app age ratings, the only thing Apple hasn’t done is implement an “adults only” app category. However, without a major change to the iTunes store there won’t be anyway to stop junior from browsing it so why bother? It’s fine as is. There’s, literally, a million things far worse than anything that could possibly make it through Apple’s approval process a few mouse clicks away for my children, I’m not in the least threatened by my kids seeing there’s a boob app.
