WARNING – DavinciDevelopers Reported As Stealing Apps From XDA

XDA is a great place to develop apps, ask for help from willing beta testers as well as learning a load from other members. Generally members are trustworthy and help towards building a great community.

However, it has recently been reported that a developer under the name of ‘DavinciDevelopers’ has been releasing apps taken from the XDA forums on the Market. Most developers are trusting enough to upload apk files directly to the forum for ease of download for beta testers or perhaps because they do not have a Market account and just want to share their app with the XDA community.

A thread has been started in the forums by XDA forum member thanaos2042 linking to various original application threads opened by the original developer and the corresponding sites that show the same app (often in beta) being sold on the Market by DavinciDevelopers.

Please be aware that this news was posted in the forums and no contact has been made with the reported offender, nor has any liability been admitted by the accused dev. In the meantime if you are an Android dev, please read the first post in the forum thread in order to preserve the integrity of your app.
