Here is a warning for anyone who likes to find the hottest newest apps for their smartphone. Some of them can be dangerous!
A lot of people look for apps in iTunes or Google Play to see what everyone else is buying that week. It turns out that by doing that, you could end up scammed.
If you are wondering what's hot when it comes to smartphone apps, the easiest thing is to go to the app store and find out what's trending. If so, you might have found Virus Shield, which for a week in early April was the most popular app at Google Play. More than 10,000 Android phone owners downloaded the $4 security app according to PC Magazine. The only problem is it wasn't real!
Android Police, which analyzes the Andriod app market, reports that Virus Shield was a fake security app that did nothing except collect your money. It has since disappeared.
From the doesn't-that-stink file, is the risk that comes with downloading Android apps. PC Magazine says unlike iTunes, where Apple scrutinizes and approves all apps, it's very easy to design and offer an app on the open source Android market. Buy a phony one and you may say, "doesn't that stink!"
The good news is the app was not dangerous, according to reviewers; it was simply up just to take money.
Be sure to read reviews of any app before downloading, especially on Android devices. Just because it is popular doesn't mean it's good, and that way you don't waste your money.
