The 7 Deadly Sins of iOS and Android apps

Both the iOS App Store and the Android Play Store have a very strict approval process for publishing apps . Have you ever wondered what are the rules that the apps must comply with to pass this process?
There are all kinds of rules, terms and conditions that an application must meet in order to reach iOS and Android users. Rules that, unfortunately, many developers skip, putting the privacy and safety of consumers at risk.
In this article, we'll share a list of the 7 basic rules for app approval before it is posted to the App Store and the Google Play Store. Something like the 7 deadly sins of iOS and Android mobile apps.

Intrusive advertising

Unfortunately, app stores are riddled with apps of this type. Intrusive advertising means that an app has too many ads or a poor morality for advertising . There are many apps that, for example, put ads in places where they should not ... causing a bad user experience.

Misleading content

This rule prohibits applications from indicating functions or features that they can not actually do.

Privacy Invasion

If an application spies on your contacts, steals your data, or crawls any of your actions, it is a breach of privacy and therefore you should withdraw from the app store.

Root Request

In the case of Android, there are many applications that request that you perform root on your device, so you should not trust them.

Questionable Permits

If, for example, a text editor asks you permission to access your camera or your contacts, you should look for another alternative. It sounds too suspicious ...

Virus and malware

Unfortunately there are many applications (iOS and Android) that install malware on your smartphone or tablet , or act as Trojans to allow the virus to enter your device.

Conflicting history

App stores also prohibit some harmless apps because of the conflicting history of a developer who has previously published harmful or non-compliant applications.
