A new Plants vs. Zombies 2 for Android app has landed in last 24 hours and has really high ratings thanks to having to leave feedback before opening. However, it is then that they find out it is not the real Plants vs. Zombies 2 for Android.
It is not the first time this sort of thing has happened and it certainly won’t be the last, but it is a terrible way to deceive Android users on the Google Play Store. The best way not to get caught out is a simple rule, one that we forget because of the excitement such a game brings, and that is to check the user or developer because it is easy to see this latest one is a fake.
As you would imagine, there have been several negative Plants vs. Zombies 2 for Android reviews, but this is because the app is fake. Some users are unhappy with having to leave feedback before opening the app, which to them is a waste of time.
Other reviews have been warning their fellow Android users not to bother because it is a fake app, and to be very careful because once you have helped to inflate Plants vs. Zombies 2 ratings, you will then be forced to download other apps, which then leads to a bombardment of advertisements.
It is clear these fake Plants vs. Zombies 2 for Android apps are not going down well with users, but this is the issue with Open Source, as it does have its negatives points, although the positives do seem to outweigh those.
