    So I'm an iOS developer, yadda yadda. These people contacted my developer support email address. If any else of you received this email, tell us here:

    The app they want you to copy is $2.99, this may be a way to get suckers to buy it.

    My response

    This is also a bit suspicious.

    I'm not sure what to make of this... It could be a tactic to drive sales to this app, but how many people could they target with that email? I'm not sure it would be enough to warrant to risk of getting caught & then banned from the app store.

    The IP address similarity could be explained if both websites used the same hosting company, which is not impossible by coincidence.

    Having said that, you're completely right to ask them to send the app to you.

    I posted this because personally I think this has to be the funniest, serious thing i've ever seen.

    Seriously go to any high school on earth and ask if they'd want a "Chastity Ring App"....

    I got this e-mail too. I followed your lead and asked for a gift copy of Purity Ring. Will see what happens. Any news from anyone else?

    You made my day with that comment, Thanks. I love a good laugh. And you hit it on the nose.
