Tumblr was removed from App Store for child pornography

Many users were having issues while searching inside the app with Safe Mode off.

It's not clear, however, whether Tumblr removed itself from the App Store or whether Apple kicked it out.

Google has introduced an "indoor maps" feature to the "Find My Device" app so that it can direct users to the spot where they might have accidentally dropped their smartphones.

The Apple app store pulled the popular social media site Tumblr from its listings last week after illegal pictures of children made it through their safeguards.

Users who downloaded the apps from Google's store thought they were getting a simple driving game when in reality they received apps that were filled with bugs and crashed every time they were opened. To fix the issue, some deleted the app and then tried to reinstall it. "A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database", it explained.

The Android apps which ranked on the Google Play Store with installs more than 580,000 were removed by Google as soon as the news the broke out. This led to it being banned for a day in Indonesia over the mature content. As this is an industry-wide problem, we work collaboratively with our industry peers and partners like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to actively monitor content uploaded to the platform. Now for the worst part: Stefanko said that before Google removed the apps, two of them were featured in the store's trending section.

Tumblr's official app first appeared in the App Store nearly a decade after Tumblr acquired a third party app called Tumblerette. Tumblr, sadly, has become notorious exactly for that type of content that would immediately get you banned on Facebook and Twitter.
