Tits and Glass UPDATE: Google Bans Glass Porn Apps

tits & glass

Wow, what a morning, folks. Really. We appreciate all the positive feedback on our adult Glass app, Tits & Glass.

Since we announced the availability of Tits & Glass this morning, nearly 10,000 unique vistors have visited TitsAndGlass.com, and a dozen Glass users have already signed up with our app. Not surprisingly, we’ve reached our API limits. Our previously approved request to up our limit was later denied today, so unfortunately, there’ll be no more updates to Tits & Glass until tomorrow.

UPDATE: By the end of the day June 3rd, over 61,000 unique visitors visited TitsAndGlass.com.

However, more importantly, and thus the purpose behind this blog post- MiKandi became aware today that Google changed its policy over the weekend to ban adult content on all Glassware.

When we received our Glass and started developing our app 2 weeks ago, we went through the policy very carefully to make sure we were developing the app within the terms. We double checked again last week when making the site live on the Internet and available for install for testing during last week’s announcement. We were not notified of any changes and still haven’t been notified by Google. We also double checked our emails to see if any notifications of policy changes were announced, but we haven’t found any such emails.

Although the app is still live and people are using it, at this point we must make changes to the app in order to comply with the new policies. Expect to see changes to the application tomorrow.

Best regards,

Jesse Adams

CEO, MiKandi

    Please tell me you are going to fight this. You made a huge leap in your industry and you should be allowed to do so. Google is making a product open to all kinds of innovation and development for third parties, why should they stifle the very thing they are welcoming people to?

  2. ok

  3. To Mikey-

    First off, thank so much for your support. Reading the comments in many of the articles that are covering this news, it appears many adults feel the same.
    After yesterday’s discovery, we’re disheartened to learn that Google is not taking the same open approach with Glass as it does with Android, at least not initially. Glass is still in beta, so whether or not Google will open the device is the future is still up in the air. We’re optimistic that in the end Google will choose to treat their Glass users as adults and give them the ability to freely access the content they desire with their device.

  4. What the @#%$ Googe ! Allow people to view whatever they want, if they don’t like it, they don’t have to look at it ! Enough said.

  5. Rover says:

    I do not support anything that helps the Professional Porn Industry. Only amateur porn should be allowed!

  6. We agree! Hopefully Google opens up when these devices become available to consumers next year.

  7. We love amateurs. :)

  8. Nick D says:

    I think it’s shameful for Google to turn its back on the industry that made sites like Google possible! The adult industry pioneered much of the Internet technology you see being used today. It was the adult industry that made the Internet grow in leaps and bounds because they were the ones with the R&D budgets to invent technology. If Google takes a page off of Apple’s play book and starts to censor what adults are allowed to see by instituting their own morals of how they believe society should act, I will throw every Android device I own right in the trash! It’s because of Apple forcing their religious views on me and blocking content such as Craigslist images that I will NEVER own an iPhone. It’s practices like these that will open the door for a legitimate third contender! Don’t forget your roots Google! Without them, you wouldn’t have grown so large.
