    I wouldn't think them being scams if they went through BlackBerry's screening.

    They are deceiving. They claim functionality they don't have in their descriptions and names, backed up by the devs positive review, when in reality they are nothing more than an RSS feed.

    And therefore, a scam.

    BlackBerry doesn't give a crap. I think it's safe to say the city maps and RSS feeds make up for the majority of our app world, and that's sad.

    those less experienced users probably don't know that they can get their money back either. How sad..

    Blackberry world is just as bad as Google Play. Actually worse, BBM's fake app got removed in a day. It's just a more secure form of google play.

    IRC, there's no approval process for apps made using the generator, but there is for any other one.

    Camera B60 is a complete scam too After buying it you are asked to install some unchecked by BlackBerry app. If you are adventurous enough, you install it and get unworked (cr)app


    My list of photo-apps is almost complete! Last acquisition - Effetica (best photo editor). Still missing good HDR camera, panorama and collage apps (let me know if I missed any in BlackBerry World)!

    Exactly app generator apps do get accepted straight away. Even when they infringe app icons and app names. I've been raging about this issue in other threads. It's so annoying to see all these effin' RSS feeds trying to con people. BlackBerry really needs to destroy that stupid app generator. Ahhhh so frustrating.

    It is frustrating to open up BlackBerry World and see a scam app like App for Viber by Kikisoft in the top 20 highest grossing apps.

    This is unacceptable.

    Someone should let John Chen know, he's the one who rules with the iron fist, maybe he can get rid of them.

    I just bumped my old topic the other day. There have been so many. And there was a point where these devs/apps were actively removed.
    I remember the App for Spotify app, it was fake, but it was even shown as one of the Banner-spotlights.

    Only in the recent weeks they have started to show up in great numbers again.

    I had an old topic on the subject in the Beta Zone app, maybe that still works for direct feedback,here.

    "Devs". Please these scumbags can't code for nuts. Don't give them the privilege of being called developers.

    There is a way to properly report apps. I'll try and Google up the email address later. But enough complaints - yank!!

    Pretty sure BlackBerry knows about this. If they cared, they would've done something about it months ago.

    Brb making App for Dumbasses and making 70 cents off of it.
