Vine is pulled from Editorial Picks of App Store because of adult content posted by some users

Vine, the twitter-powered and developed iOS application has created widespread curiosity. Such latest version of Social Media immediately became the hot picks of many users across the globe and causing Apple to be aware of it. Apple categorized it into the Editorial’s Picks for a short time before it is officially pulled from the category. Apps with great potential would be classified in the Editorial Picks to boost their sales. However, The Vine is yet pulled by App Store because they may feature some adult content that is in serious violation of the App Store Policy.

Some users even registered with targeted keywords for those specific categories. Vine lacks the mechanisms to regulate and detect these users from growing therefore, despite its creativity in making a new ear for social network platform, its adult side demerits it. Given the scale of users being affected if the Vine is officially pulled by Apple App Store, it is just off from the Editorial Picks label. Users can still search it and download it for free. Meanwhile, Vine has also demonstrated efforts in cracking down these sensitive user names and videos. Search results are now unavailable if you search for phrases related to the banned content.
