Google Pulls PhoneMyPC from Play store

On June 2nd, we received a notice that Google had pulled PhoneMyPC from the Play store, citing a violation of “IP infringement and impersonation” policy. We believe this is an error, and we have applied.

Note: This issue only effects current and future Google Play customers. PhoneMyPC customers who purchased from SlideMe, Amazon or Blackberry are not affected.

What this means to you

  1. You cannot purchase PhoneMyPC from Google. You can still purchase from Amazon App Store
  2. If you own PhoneMyPC, you cannot download it until this is resolved
  3. We cannot publish updates until this is resolved

What you can do

  • Do not uninstall PhoneMyPC until its market listing is restored
  • Do not download from torrent or other internet sites; we have found most of these illicit copies to contain malicious code
  • Contact Google and tell them you want your app back. If you find a way to do this, share and we will publish
  • Let other’s know

We are doing everything in our power to get this resolved as soon as possible. Unfortunately, even in the face of disenfranchising tens of thousands of customers, Google has no direct means of error resolution, so all we can do is wait to hear back on our appeal.
