    The #5 paid app in Hong Kong is currently Polemon Yellow, yet it was developped by a random guy and every reviews says it's a fake app that does nothing. I wonder how this app made it to the app store and how come the developer is still allowed to scam people. The app has been selling since the 17th of February and is top ranked in many other countries.

    I just saw this today. What gave it away for me was the screenshots were from Pokémon Yellow. My geekdar went off, lol.

    How did Apple allow this?

    The same developer is also selling a Digimon and a Yu-Gi-Oh app. I wonder how he managed to scam so many people with such an obvious fraud.

    Great now stuck with a app that will never be updated. :confused: I did not buy it and anyone is stupid to buy it. Just read the reviews.

    It was a scam to begin with. The developer tried to get quick cash and disappear he was never going to update the app to begin with.
