As of September 9, 2014 Apple announced that there are 1.3 million apps in the App Store. Pretty sure the 1.3 million figure include the junk in the App Store.

I was re-downoading XCOM: Enemy Unknown on my iPad, and I saw an app titled:

GamePRO – X-COM Enemy Within Edition

XCOM in the App Store

I had a hunch, so I checked out this “GamePRO – X-COM Enemy Within Edition” app. My hunch was right; this is a junk app.

The reviews shows that this app is completely misleading.

This “developer” seems to have a lot of apps published in the App Store. All of them are complete junk.

Junk App Michelle Bernardo IngeniusGames_com

This is what IngeniusGames.com look like:

IngeniusGames_com

It is a WordPress site with sample contents from the theme. I wonder how Apple App Store Team approved any apps from this so called developer?

If you see this kind of misleading, scummy junk apps, please report it to Apple.
