Be careful with downloading the Free Apps
I downloaded a few free apps recently and have been receiving messages from a company or developer that I did NOT ask for and cannot find a way to remove. Cannot get their email address or any information about them from the message to contact them to request they stop. Can't block their message without an address.
Had downloaded Awesome Contacts Color LED lights from Pace MobiTech. Keep getting constant messages with app offers.
Anyone know how to get rid of this???
Edit** I deleted the app and still got another offer message shortly afterwards.

Apparently there are some company's that should be avoided. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.
I know I got a lot of annoying spam from Jared Co but at least it stopped when I deleted the app.Power corrupts. Knowledge is power.
Study hard. Be evil.

Were they android apps? I know when I used android, I would get those in my notification area, I had to do a restore to get rid of them. I hope this isn't a way for those spammers to infiltrate the App Store.all smartphones are tools.
android = 48pc tool set (you"ll eventually find the tool you need, but some assembly required)
iphone = swiss army knife (most of the tools you need in a small, simple to use package)
blackberry = adjustable wrench (sometimes all you need is a wrench)
windows phone = bionic wrench (its different....but it works)

ive had that too. They will get you on their mailer and also give your email to their developer friends. The emails have a link to unsubscribe at the bottom. You click the link to unsubscribe and it says "technical difficulties, please come back at a later time!". Well I keep going back at a later time and it always says that. Very sleazy way to keep sending you emails.

Had that happen when I downloaded "Screen Grabber Free-No Watermark" by The Jared Company, received so many frequent annoying advertising emails that it was enough to make me delete the app. Not sure if your apps were free like mine was but I think thats the trade off Free App= Free Advertisement.______________________________________
