500px app returns to the App Store with mature rating and better photo reporting options

500px has returned to the App Store after its short hiatus over nudity concerns. Apple's main issue was that nudity was too easy to come across without any warning even though a recent update has made them harder to find, not easier. This time, 500px has been updated with an added mature rating and better photo reporting features.

It isn't blatantly apparent what changes have exactly been made to the 500px app other than it's had a mature rating added and an easier way to report photos. This was done by a "report photo" button being added in an easy to find place. This could be to address the child pornography concerns that people were rumoring. 500px stated previously that they'd never received such complaints but would take any very seriously.

Whatever 500px did to prevent nudity coming up unless a user wants to see it must have appeased Apple enough to allow the app back into the App Store.

Seems like the big change, that made the difference, is to add the mature rating. If it didn't initially have that rating then the makers of that app would have been wrong regardless of whether you agree or disagree with Apple's pornography views.

I was surprised it didn't have a mature rating to begin with since it polls from the internet. From my understand, ANY app that does that must have a mature rating.

From my understanding* whoops

This "controversy" is probably the best thing to ever happen to 500px because I know without it I, like most people, never would have even heard of this app - Apple managed to put them on the map!
