We all love Apple due to the mouthwatering and fascinating applications related to every utility of life from education to games. There are so many applications in the App Store and the number is increasing by every day passing. This is one of the reasons why Apple has got such a fame around. App Store was considered to be one of the best online Applications center.
You might have heard that may developers keep on complaining that Apple has very strict rules for approving any application but still somehow some fake and spam apps have made their ways in the App Store. This issue became hot when a famous game was fakes by another app and the developers have urged Apple to take some actions against. Apple in response deleted some fake apps and for you not be deceived, we are here to give you some tips with which you can identify that which one is real and which one is fake.
1) Reading the description
Reading out the description before you click on the buy button is as important as eating a new thing and looking into the ingredients. The quality of the material that has been written as a description of the application will tell you about the identity of application. If it is written in a childish way then it shows that the developer is not that much interested in his app or it is a scam.
2) Scan the App Store
Before you go for having an app from App Store, make sure that you make a search. There are some copycat apps are so brazen they will steal the underlying code, the name and the icon of the original app with minimal changes. Having a looks on the app brands and color themes will help you identify them. you might come across with the app named Angry Birdy with the same red flags and you might be downloading that one mistakenly. So have a look before you go for it.
3) Read out the comments on the App
This one will never deceive you. Do not forget to check out their views of those who have already downloaded that particular app. They will say what ever they will feel about it and if it is a scam, then you surely be having a look on some filthy type of comments from users who got trapped. So they will be saying clearly not to go for that app as it is a fraud and other stuff.
4) Have a look on the Developer’s history
If you are planning to have a particular app then before you buy it, do not forget to have a look on the history of the developer. If the developer is legitimate then this will also give you a green signal to go with it. Experienced developers have many apps in the App Store and if your developer has multiple apps then simple download it. If there is not any history available about the developer, then this might be a risk and its better not to go for that one.
5) The time App was updated
Once an app is approved, most scammers won’t take the time to update a title. They remain in the app Store and the sole purpose of their existence is to make money and the developer does not bother to develop or improve their title. Underneath the “Buy App” button, you can find out the last update, app version number etc. This will also help you identifying the reality of the app.
We hope these tips will surely help you not to be deceived by any scammer in the App Store. Also don’t forget to share your thoughts and views in the comments section below. For more news and updates on the App Store, stay connected with us.
