quote: Sure this is one of the risks of Google doing their open model for apps.But guess what? Apple approved an app which violated their own TOS by using one of the volume buttons as a camera shutter.Quite an obvious feature. It should have never been approved. But it was, and only pulled later after getting noticed by the web.If apple can't be bothered to screen for obvious TOS violatoins, what makes me think they are screening for malware?
