    Hey there

    In Switzerland and Germany (and propably other countries), this app:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/who-cares-me-instadetector/id1059156366?mt=8

    is on Charts ranking in free at #1.

    Last year the same app was in the app store and pulled for stealing passwords:

    http://www.cnet.com/news/third-party-instagram-app-pulled-after-stealing-passwords/

    Now the SAME APP is BACK AGAIN.

    With all 1-Star ratings and "don't download, your account will be hijacked" comments,
    apple doesent do ANYTHING about it.

    I wrote Apple Support but no answer to date.

    PS: A technical analysis of the stealing mechanism is to be found here:

    My app was not allowed on the app store because of "no entertrainment functionality",
    but such apps are allowed? Sometimes I think the app store guys are corruptible.

    How long does it take to apple for pull this?
    Why does apple allow such sh*t?
    How can such an app be ranking number one?

    Are they blind?

    As a serious developer I feel pissed. Not that they didn't allow my app,
    but that they dont react and accept such things.

    Greetings
