The #1 new paid app in the Android Play store costs $4, has over 10,000 downloads, a 4.7 star rating, and is a total scam.

In which "Virus Shield" is shown to be a form with a toggle-able checkbox.

But there's an accountablity and trust issue that is going to have to be resolved in software...

The problem with the overly predatory commercial "app" market for devices and now computers, is that the masses as well as the geeks have lost any semblance of trust on their devices. We the geeks need to be better at policing and ousting (and flogging) the scammers. The problem is being fueled by both smart geeks that need to make a living, and the "you too can learn to be an app programmer in 48 hours" appcelerator style programs.
