  • Here's the reason Tumblr is missing from Apple's app store

But now, as per WABetaInfo, the Twitter account that keeps a track on the upcoming WhatsApp features, Apple is removing all third-party WhatsApp Sticker apps from its App Store as they "are violating their guidelines".

Meanwhile, Tumblr Android app is available at Google Play Store.

Tumblr's latest announcement, made this morning, notes it's still working to restore the app to the iOS store. I already have the app on my phone, and didn't notice a disruption over the weekend, and any user who'd already downloaded the app may find it in the "Purchased" section of the App Store's settings.

WABetaInfo says that the reasons Apple is taking this decision to remove WhatsApp Sticker apps is that there are many apps with similar behaviour on the app store, many apps with a similar design, and, the apps require WhatsApp to be installed when App Store guidelines instruct apps should not require other apps.

However, Download.com learned what really happened-proving the speculations were right.

And not just generic mature content, mind, but explicit media featuring child sexual exploitation and abuse.

In its statement, it said that all images uploaded to Tumblr pass through a database of "known child sexual abuse material". 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. A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database. Apple had previously removed Telegram from the App Store since it was being used to share child pornography.

The company removed the offending content immediately and the gap in content monitoring is being tackled. "We're continuously assessing further steps we can take to improve and there is no higher priority for our team".
