back to article iPhone user shamegasm: 'I beg of you', delete sex app from my purchase list

The developer of a vibrator app has told guilty self-touching fanbois that it cannot wipe away their sinful past.

      One ex used to use a Motorola V series flip-phone. No need for an app back then, just put use the setting to turn it on or off and let it run in demo mode...

        Seems a lot of fuss to go through just to stop people asking to use your phone.

    Am I the only one thinking that perhaps the iPhone isn't exactly shaped in the correct way for this purpose?

      Perhaps it is designed for a different kind of hole?

        Sure it is... its much narrower than the competition... I always thought the iPhone was too narrow for mens big hands to use.. turns out its a real ladies phone!

    Nobody want their parents to take their sex toy the wrong way, even if they gave it a really good wash afterwards.

      Yeah, but at least they provided a good comedy moment for the day:

      "Ultimately, all of these apps are limited by the capabilities of the iPhone itself."

      "Yeah, like, come on Apple..."

      "I know, we didn't need an iPad mini, we needed a vibrator."

      "This is what happens when Steve Jobs passes away."

    Its like this. Not just apps but music as well.

    Sometimes the into to the music feature does not give full feature of music you may want to buy and based on the snippet I bout a few albums that after a while really do seem to totally suck and would like to unlist them from my purchases. I really do not care if I get a refund or not I just want it out of my list of music I bought.
