Playboy coming to iPad without nudity

Yesterday, Hugh Hefner announced that Playboy magazine would be available uncensored on the iPad, but what he failed to mention was that it would be in the form of a web app, not a native application from the App Store.

We are releasing a web-based subscription service with Bondi Digital Publishing that will give users access to every issue of Playboy both past and present. The service will be iPad compatible and will utilize iPad functions.

The Playboy spokesperson went on to say that they "also have plans to release a non-nude version of a Playboy-branded iPad app in the coming months that adheres to all of Appleā€™s policies and guidelines." So the above tweet by Hugh Hefner back in August still holds true.

So any concerns that Apple may be relaxing or removing their current restriction against nudity can be dropped. It looks like if you want porn, you'll still have to go to Android - or just launch Safari.
