Third party Android discovery service AppBrain makes it easy to search, browser, and discover apps in the Android Market either using a web browser or the company’s mobile app. And historically that has meant any app in the Market, although AppBrain makes the spammy apps a bit harder to find. Now the company has gone a step further and made the sexually explicit apps a bit harder to access by adding a “mature content” filter.

Technically, Google’s Android Market policies prohibit developers from submitting these apps to the Market in the first place, but because Google, unlike Apple, doesn’t physically approve every app before it goes into the market, there are plenty of these apps available. If you’d rather not see them… or not have your children see them, AppBrain now makes that easier.
