Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has a lot of things on its plate right now. CEO Tim Cook was scheduled to testify before a U.S. committee this week about profits and taxation. Apple is managing its bond issue and it is ramping up its stock buyback while beginning to get its supply and production lines ramped up for the next batch of devices to hit store shelves in the fall by most accounts. Oh, and not to mention the several lawsuits the company is facing, from the Department of Justice anti-trust suit over e-book sales to the ongoing proxy battles against Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) over patent rights.
So where does Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) find the time to ban flirtations among users of its iOS operating system and the App store? What’s the matter with a little harmless fun among adults?
No really, we’re asking that question because we have yet to get an answer. There is a report that the flirting application Bang With Friends – which boasts more than a million users at this point – was suddenly removed from the Apple App Store without so much as an explanation so far. The Android version of the app, however, is still available in the Google Play store.

Bang With Friends, for those who don’t know, is an app that allows users to send out flirts to friends to see if there was a mutual interest in “hooking up.” It had been approved for the App Store a while ago, so the removal of the app is mysterious, as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has yet to make any comment about the move.
