"Porn exists" app

  [vote for,

It's an app that just reminds you that porn exists. Every time you open it, it tells you so, with different wording. Additionally, from time to time (configurable), it displays a notification telling you porn exists.

That's all it does. It contains no porn. It links to nowhere. It just reminds you.

Can we somehow force it to be installed on Tim Cook's iPhone?

Apple does not allow apps “that contain user generated content that is frequently pornographic.” [xaviergisz, Dec 10 2018]


       I have no idea why I have been included in this "idea"? Besides that, why would anyone need to be reminded that porn exists? Please explain.

       Is there anything else on Tim Cook's Phone?

       Who is Tim Cook?

       // I have no idea why I have been included in this "idea"? //   

       Because for some reason I thought you were opposed to porn. I guess I was mistaken.

       To paraphrase Pterry Pratchett, "Almost all attempts at social, cultural and political change inevitably fail - not because you have the wrong sort of ideas, or ideals, or system, but because you have, in the end, the wrong sort of people".   

       Humans do very odd things. Get over it.

       To quote Dr. Cox (off Scrubs): "If they took all the porn off the internet, there'd only be one website left, and it would be called bringbacktheporn.com".
There has always been porn. There will always be porn. A reminder is not needed.

       //the wrong sort of people//   

       That's ringing bells, sounds like an ironic contemplation of pretty much any of a long line of dictators or political "thinkers" methods (be they merely suggested or applied) to be found on either side of the fence*, what was the context (which character, which book, etc)?   

       * on it, above it, a few miles away, nowhere near the fence, slightly to one side standing at an obtuse angle, in fact pretty much an relation to the fence you can think of, including none, actually forget about the fence (most of them did), the fence isn't important.

       Oh, I forgot to respond to this part:   

       // Besides that, why would anyone need to be reminded that porn exists? Please explain. //   

       This app is intended to make a point against Apple's walled- garden app store, where porn is banned. Both Steve Jobs and Tim Cook have said that people who like porn should buy Android devices, IIRC.

       Here's me thinking, this software plugin is to remind me not to use euphemistic phrasing in an image search.

       [marked-for-deletion] Not an invention.   

       I get it, you have a strong opinion about apple's porn policy. Wrapping that into an "invention" doesn't really add much. There are lots of places online where you can share your opinions without having to go through the trouble, and I strongly suggest you start using some of those.
