Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) has given the official iPhone Playboy (NYSE: PLA) application a 17+ rating, but don’t expect any nudity here. Apple gives a slightly false impression by warning that the app has “frequent/intense sexual content or nudity,” but Playboy promises that the app obeys Apple’s strict policies on porn and that the raciest content includes cropped photos of the playmates and sexy poses.
The application is now available in iTunes for $1.99 on the iPhones and the iPod Touch. The app features content from the monthly magazine, such as a picture of the cover, table of contents, the Playmate’s intro text, and behind the scenes videos. There’s also wallpapers of the iconic rabbit head. For Playboy, the app represents a recurring revenue stream because users will be able to download a new edition of the app on the same day the Playboy magazine hits the newsstands.
