I am new to WP and just paid for a fake app that does nothing. Unbelievable! I had been on Android for years and when I heard about Cortana I thought I had to give WP 8.1 a try. This is like sitting in a fine dining restaurant, really enjoying a great meal, then getting up to go to the rest room and as you walk by the kitchen, the door swings open and everyone is working in there ****. I just want to throw up! Good times with Cortana are officially over for me. Who do I yell STOP THIEF! to? Bill Gates should be ashamed of himself for introducing me to these thieves! He cares so little that he has given no warning that these pirates exist in his waters and has supplied no form of recourse. If I had just a few minutes of time with this app where I could have uninstalled it and got my money back (like I can on the Android platform) all incentive for thievery like this would be gone. That alone would bring the populating of the WP store with fake apps to a halt. Bad form! Microsoft has no honor or integrity left! This is like going to play laser tag and bullets start flying. WP has just got real!

Hello Randy_879,

thank you for posting into the Forum.

I understand you have concerns about reporting Apps.

Have you reported them by going to the Store, lookig for the App you want to report swipe left twice, until details and on the bottom you can report the App to Microsoft?

 

Kind regards

Anna-Maria L.

I understand, but surely the whole point of the store is that only accredited Apps are allowed and that fakes and Trojan horse apps can be kept out. Are you saying that MS only retrospectively remove duds when users flag issues? Can Microsoft not go the extra mile and proactively qualify Apps before they are released via the store? As the WP Store is much smaller than the Android and Apple equivalents it an easier and less costly task and one of the ways MS can distinguish itself from competitors.

Hi Anna-Maria,

I've reported a couple of dysfunctional apps in the store. There is no indication that my complaints are received or read by anyone, and no action is taken.
So I stopped reporting fake apps more than six months ago.

Microsoft should also change its policy and introduce Refunds in such cases ..

I bought an application (Mobile Bartender) for INR 62.00. Paid further INR 132.00 as In-application purchase but did not get any additional features. Contacted the developer who responded , 'It should not have happened' Contact MS... and MS representative said they do not have any Refund policy.. !!!

it's not that much smaller to make much of a difference.

The reporting of apps is done as described, only no action is taken.
A sample:

https://www.microsoft.com/da-dk/store/apps/filmstriben/9nblggh0j5bx
Does not and can not work as advertised - filmstriben.dk use Silverlight for PC.

Don't get me started on how an app can have one set of reasonable requirements in the Store - and then hoist all personal information from the user when it offers to connect to OneDrive and perform a backup, now requiring full access to everything.

Microsoft Store is not a place where I can shop with confidence, please fix!
