Playboy's iPad app features no nude content

Adult publication forced to comply with Apple's strict no-nudity policy

Top-shelf magazine Playboy has agreed to remove all nude content from its iPad app, to comply with Apple's strict no-nudity policy.

The adult magazine had to censor its content for the App Store - an online service for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad created by Apple - which bans any content it considers as "obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory."

Even the "Playmate of the Month", one of the magazine's most popular photo features, will show only the model's face on the $4.99 HD downloadable digital version of the magazine.

The magazine's founder Hugh Hefner recently announced plans to buy the remaining shares of US-based Playboy Enterprises and gain complete control over the publishing house.
