BOULDER, Colo.—Apple has approved the first female porn star iPhone application for Vivid contract star Sunny Leone and the official application for adult nude superstar Aria Giovanni, reports Grindhouse Mobile Inc., a premier technical provider for adult mobile application development, including iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian OS, Palm, Windows Mobile and others.
In a press release issued Wednesday, Grindhouse said Version 1.0 of the both of their brand-new sexy apps are now available in the Apple iTunes store. Leone's V1 app is a free "lite” version that offers exclusive pictures, a blog and video clips. Version 2.0, a premium version with more features, photo sets and videos, is currently awaiting approval from Apple. V2 will also contain new interactive features, including games, ways contact Sunny directly from the phone and additional high-quality exclusive content.
In June, Apple approved the first ever porn star application for Athletic Modeling Guild's Brasil Boys, and in July it approved AMG Beefcake!, but Wednesday's announcement is the first for a female porn star.
"I'm so excited about the future of my iPhone App. This provides an entire new way for me to communicate with my fans and give them a new and unique content experience," said Leone.
The official iPhone app for former Penthouse Pet Aria Giovanni, one of the world's most beautiful and recognized nude centerfolds, is the second adult application developed by Grindhouse and approved by Apple. It is also currently available in the App Store. Version 2.0 is pending approval and will include several new features, more content and a few surprises for her fans.
"I'm thrilled with my new App and can't wait for Version 2.0 to hit the App store. It's going to blow my fans away. Thank you, Apple, for approving my App and giving my fans another way to follow my life and modeling career," said Giovanni.
While the first version of Sunny Leone's App was declined due to the explicit nature of the content, a Grindhouse representative said the company worked diligently to develop the two adult-themed iPhone Apps that were eventually approved by Apple, and closely followed Apple's strict guidelines.
"It was just a little too 'hot' for Apple's compliance department," said the representative. "We worked closely with Apple to meet all of their guidelines while developing an offering that is compelling and user friendly."
The company says that Sunny and Aria are only the first of many entertainment-related mobile applications to be released by Grindhouse, including some of the largest brand names and adult superstars in the adult industry. The next major release will include "The girls of Erotica.com."
