Apple allows two fake Halo 4 apps to be sold in the App Store

Each Halo 4 app also featured a number of 5 star reviews. Actually, to be precise, there were 206 reviews with an average 4.5 stars. How could something like this escape the watchful eye of Apple not just once, but twice? We do have to note that Apple has removed the fake Halo 4 apps, but not before some people spent $4.99 for something that they did not receive.

And to think, I was led to believe these types of problems are only native to android.

Apple is just letting anything through to keep their numbers up against Android.

Should anyone actually think the latest XBox 360 mega title would appear on an iOS device? Shame on these unscrupulous "developers" in the first place, but shame on the buyers for thinking it's the game itself. If they believe that, I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn...

Yea....some of us said the same thing when fake Apple apps were in the Google Play Store. But.....the thing ppl harped on was "thats what happens when you have an app store not as controlled as Apple's" This isnt supposed to happen in the Apple app store. Its supposed to be a tightly run ship in Apple land. More n more...the Apple vs. Androiod myths are dying one by one.

I really think it's time to drop the prism of the "perfect eco system", most tech journalists are using. Take Verge reviews - Apple products get a 10 here by default, while Android phones can't get more than 8 (or 9 if it's the Nexus, which again shows the subjective bias ) The fact is Google play is getting better and better and has its advantages over the iTunes. I mean, there are loads of apps that are free on Google play, and cost money on the app store. And also, great exclusive apps on both sides, not just on the ..dark one.:p
