Looks a lot like Word, but it's just a shameless counterfeit.

    How on Earth would Apple approve such an app in the App Store – unless, of course it’s for the JB community ?

    Everyone does not lust for Microsoft products, I can assure you. The Office programs do not work well together as a suite and each one is inconsistent and over-busy, looks ghastly and the barriers to productivity kill any creative urge.

  • technochick

    It made it into the store because the description tells them what it is. A guide to Microsoft Word. NOT actually Word. Perhaps they should have had to put something like “Learn” or “Guide” in the title but they haven’t hidden what they were attempting to do. 

    That said, $10, really? A guide like that is worth $.99 tops. but I do love the two complaints that they want their money back because you can’t write anything. Dudes did you not read before you paid.

    Ironically, immediately after urging readers to avoid this app, it is featured in the “Apps you might like” on the same page. Go figure.

    The app seems to have been dropped from the app store…

    Banning and removing this app is not the solution for this error. The real problem is “how apple store approved this submission?”. Is that an auto approval system? You may see that the description is over promotion! And the vendor is not Microsoft! OMG iOS app store!!! They should care more about..

    P.S. Hey Bill! look at your site! this app shows on your site too in “Apps you might like” widget! Take the necessary actions to remove this app to protect your visitors!
