Google Removes Another 500+ Apps From the Play Store – Spyware Update

Google is working hard to crack down on Spyware and other questionable Play Store apps. They’re doing a pretty good job, considering how large and open the Store can be.

Here’s one of the articles about this most recent public purge.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you own an Android device, don’t download apps from unknown sources or shady stores. The Play Store isn’t 100% secure (nothing is!)… but it and the Amazon storefront are infinitely more secure than other Android marketplaces!
