UPDATE: Status of Tits & Glass

well that escalated quickly

Two weeks ago, one of our senior developers picked up his Google Glass device, and after tinkering around with it and going over their developer policy with a magnifying glass, we announced we were going full speed ahead with a Google Glass porn app.

Yesterday morning, we announced it, after releasing it last week. Mere hours later, we voluntarily disabled updates to Glass users when we learned Google quietly dropped the ban hammer on adult content over the weekend. At this point, Google still has not reached out to notify us of the policy changes.

We may be a group of nerds and hackers, but we’re nice-guy nerds and hackers. From the get-go, we said we wanted to play within Google’s terms and help push this technology forward. We just think sexy glasses deserve sexy content.

We’ve been coding away and revised the app to meet Google’s new policies. While testing the updated the app, our developer discovered that Google dropped the API limit to 0 on his Glass user account. In non-nerd speak, that means we can’t push any updates to the app.

He called Google this afternoon to find out if we were officially blocked. Google representatives refused to answer any questions as to whether or not the API account was blocked. At the moment, however, our API limit remains stubbornly at zero.

So here’s where we are: we’ve kept true to our promise to adhere to Google’s Glass policies (as we always scrupulously comply with all of our legal obligations) and have updated our app to reflect that. We’re eagerly waiting to hear back from Google in regards to the status of our account. As soon as we know, you’ll know.

Best regards,

Jesse Adams
CEO, MiKandi

P.S. We still have our IAmA going on Reddit. If you want to ask MiKandi co-founder Jennifer McEwen any questions, send them over.
