If you see two or more apps on the store, the one that has the most release history is the real one. 👍 Look for the doggo 🐺

If you accidentally downloaded a scam version, I cannot guarantee what it’s doing under the hood. I suggest revoking access to the app *immediately*.

@eurasierboy oh sorry for not checking first. I wonder why the Yels Pera just uploaded it again without changing anything but the logo.

@wakest I wonder why they haven’t been outright banned from the developer program

@eurasierboy hahahaha I downloaded the fake one. this is what it looks like on the inside. its REALLY fake

@wakest christ what a mess - how on earth does that even make it through the review process

@Gargron for the amount of pain it sometimes takes to get through the review process to begin with? No. Fucking. Clue.

@eurasierboy @Gargron is the one I spotted this morning likely to be malicious in any way? I don’t understand what they get from publishing a clone.

@Leee @Gargron I would only assume malicious intent. I won’t even attempt to log into the thing.

@Tom yeah, have an active IP dispute open with their legal team now.

@digdog have a dispute with the Apple legal team ongoing 👍

@migurski not really no. That would cost hundreds of dollars and I’d be engaging the same battle anyway - Amaroq’s MPL licensing and Apple’s own policies against duplicate apps are enough.

@eurasierboy How would the Apple App Store allow a scam app? I thought they had strict checking and all that.
