Well, it looks like the guys over at the “world’s best photography” site, 500px, have indeed managed to rectify the alleged ‘explicit’ image issue it ran into recently, as the application is, (as of today), available for download on the iTunes App Store – (again).
500px is a premium photo sharing platform for aspiring and professional photographers. From portraits to landscapes, wildlife to still life, concrete jungle to abstract art; our community constantly pushes the boundaries of the craft.
500px updates today with a number of changes, including:
- Fixes for an issue that would redirect a user after logging in
- Fixes for an issue that resulted in partially downloaded photos
- Addition of a “Report this photo” button (Tap the details icon on a photo and scroll to the bottom)
The app was previously pulled after an Apple spokesperson noted the app was, (in its previous coniditon), “a clear violation of [its] guidelines,” adding that 500px had been specifically pulled due to “customer complaints about possible child pornography.”
Representatives for 500px responded to the claims by stating that a concern about child exploitation “was never mentioned,” during its correspondence with Apple over the alleged findings.
