Fake "Apple" apps appeared in Google Play Store

delete the apps immediately and pass the word on to your Android totin' buddies.
Before they were taken down, one purchaser of the fake iPhoto app gave it a 1-star review and said, "Wont open says not connected to internet when i am [sic]." If you did happen to purchase one of the six apps, or more, let us know what your experience was if you opened them, by leaving your comments in the box below.

I wish Apple would put GarageBand on Android and sell MicroUSB adapters for it or for Google to do something like GarageBand... I'd seriously love to record my guitar with no background noise on my phone or tablet, but I guess PC will do for now.

Google needs better quality control. This shouldn't have been accepted at all.

agreeing with him means agreeing with every other negative thing he HAS said and will CONTINUE to say.........yes he is correct here but its not about being correct with him its more about his hatred for android and google as a whole...........So dont fall for it bro I seen it too much to agree with it........peace

why? because what he is "secretly" saying is...."See I told you google is no good" or " See Google doesnt know how to do anything good" ......and all other negative things.....Thats why you shouldnt support that until there is a sense of "sincerity" coming from him .....how will you know when? well you know if someone is yelling at you or if someone is glad to speak with you, do you not?

Google will only get better if people critic them . So there is no need to defending google to the death . But i agree with him in this case Google does need better quality control . Well , he is always gonna hate google anyway . Just that in this post he stated the right thing . Its pretty obvious that this guy is just a troll , i dont think we should argue about him . Peace

Put down your phone/tablet/pc. Go outside, take a breath, see some friends, kiss your misses, have a bbq. Idk. Just do something other than study what some random person you dont know who really shouldnt matter posts about on a phone site.

@XPERIA-KNIGHT: You seem to have developed an illness or an obsession dude. Who the f**k cares what he "usually" comments about? This ain't a novel with good/bad characters. Chill out and just read the damn opinion and then thumb up/down it accordingly...

I agree. Even the faithful Apple fans.....at times they say something I agree with. I cant just agree or disagree with someone on general principle. I got a boat load of red thumbs one time just for basically telling him nice post... lol

Well, it´s the second post I have ever seem from him that makes some sense (in all times). You have to give him some credit for that :) All the others where completelly and utterly useless bashing on Android.

He is a Apple troll who enjoys special relationship with PA since he rarely gets banned whereas i got banned for writingn "IFAIL" whereas PA writers themselves use phrases like GOOGLE FAIL. Maybe i will get a warning for posting this ...

Control is necessary, like removing all apps containing the word "memory", or everything has similar feature with an Apple's app like Siri even existing before on Apple Store.

Not sure what you're talking about. Quality control is excellent, even better than Apple's. It was removed very quickly especially considering the amount of apps available... quality control is different than having a closed and restricted environment (despite this, Apple has even more percentage of malware). Check out the other article and you'll see how great their quality control is: http://www.phonearena.com/news

I agreed with you. as a long time android fan, i have to admit that google playstore is bad in quality in terms of apps. Look at the amount of 3-1 starred rated apps they have in there. iOS' apps store have better quality apps. And Apple did a good quality control over that. If some of you immature android fans dislike this comment, it goes to show that you cannot accept the strengths and weaknesses of any other products besides google's.

Dont agree totally about quality. Even tho I think iOS apps look and function better in some cases. E Trade app was one that was better on iOS. Thats one case and I dont think its bad on Android. Its just that on iOS its better. I will say for some apps that are on both Android and iOS....on Android I would call them good, iOS better. Like E Trade....they looked the same, but was better functionality wise on iOS. Another example....speedtest.net app looked better on iOS....but functions about the same on both Android and iOS. And it looking better doesnt mean it looked like someone drew it in crayon on Android...lol. I do agree 100% with that last sentence tho.
