Google revealed that another 25 apps have been removed from the Android Marketplace. Yuck.
This batch of malapps infected between 30,000 and 120,000 devices. Which by itself is a little scary – in that Google doesn’t really know how many devices are infected. I suppose it would be 30,000 devices if each device owner downloaded four of the nasty apps.
No wonder the Apple App Store is making a killing for its developers. Users can buy the app with confidence that it will work most of the time and that there is no malformed features involved. Sadly, Android cannot make the same claim.
