By searching around in the play store I found some apps from a developer named lookawv. This developer makes games witch are already available in play store!

https://play.google.com/store/search?q=chimpact

There are a lot of these apps from him, and they all where released in the last few days!

I already reported this to Google. I do not know if there is something like a "virus" in these apps but to me this seems very strange. So guys watch out!

He renamed every app, added spam and ads and uploaded as his own.

There is still no reaction from Google. All apps are still present in play store. Maybe some more people should report them to Google!

Google is slow today. Read the comments folks. If someone downloads without reading the reviews, I'd call it natural selection.

All his apps are still available in the Canadian Playstore as of 5:51 EST. Doesn't google have some sort of app approval process? I would think ripping all these people off would be easy to detect.
