Creepy Girl-Stalking App Girls Around Me Has Been Yanked From The App Store

Girls Around Me — the creepy geo-location app that allowed you to stalk and find personal information about girls in your neighborhood without their knowledge — has been pulled from the iOS App Store.

It’s unknown at this point whether Apple yanked the controversial app in direct response to the controversy sparked by our original report on the app, or whether the developers pulled it because Foursquare had revoked Girls Around Me’s API access — again in response to our report — effectively making the app useless.

As of writing, Apple has not commented on the fate of Girls Around me. However, Foursquare came out against the app in a public statement, saying that the app had violated the terms of its API policies, and that they would no longer support it.

Question should be - How did it get approved in the first place?
