Technology.am (May 22, 2009) — Apple rejected yet another iPhone app the e-book reader Eucalyptus, from its App Store because of the app’s ability to search for and download the Kama Sutra, a text-only version of the ancient Indian book on sexuality.
However, you can find the Kama Sutra in the iPhone App Store through other methods. Eucalyptus’ developer Jamie Montgomerie argues that users could find the Kama Sutra through Safari and Google on the iPhone. The Google search results potentially contain material much more offensive than the e-book.
The Kama Sutra can also be found using other e-book readers available on the App Store.
Now Eucalyptus does not come with the Kama Sutra installed by default, or it doesn’t come with any books installed. For this you have to search for and download the books yourself.
For now, Eucalyptus will not be available in the App Store, unless the developer specifically bans the Kama Sutra from the app.
Apple will add parental controls, potentially opening the door for adult-oriented content.
