App Review – Down
Threat Level – Very High
If you remember my app review for Bang With Friends, you will recognize this app called Down. Down as in, down to have sex.
Shortly after the release of the app Bang with friends, the Apple store banned the App from the App Store. Android was the only place that aloud the app Bang with friends. So what does the company that brought the app Bang with Friends do? They make a few tweaks to their app to relaunch as quick as they can. Introducing Down.
Down is an IOS app that allows Facebook members to discreetly facilitate hook-ups from their smartphones. Yes I said hook ups! Absolutely ridiculous that an app such as this would be allowed. I have sent my concerned email again to apple affairs for removal due to pornographic innuendos of the app, and I suggest everyone express their opinions.
The new mobile apps work like the Web service and allows people to sign in with Facebook to pick a friend for a meeting for intercourse. Selections remain anonymous until two people pick each other. At that point, the parties receive e-mail notifications of their mutual desire.
On mobile, (free to download) “Down” users can select a new “Up for Hang” option to indicate that they might be open to a fully clothed gathering. This is where they tried to steer the dating side of the app in attempt to fight off the people accusing it of a solicitation app. I’m not falling for it. The other option to select is called “Down”. This alerts the parties they both are down to have sex with each other.
Like its sister app “Bang with friends” I say ban it! If you see your child with this on their device, take everything away from them! Dangerous in so many ways!
