    Hi everyone,

    A month ago, I used the service of a well known, established, US ad network to run an "app boost" campaign in Asia.
    The day of the campaign, Apple noticed the developer of this app of " Appstore TOS violation".
    It looks like this ad network company actually generated fake downloads (maybe a bot?!). 20K iOS downloads within 24 hours.

    Since that notice from Apple, the app is:
    -still live (search the exact name, or key word and you will find the app)
    -but out of Charts, worlwide. (you will not find the app in the top chart or category charts)

    It has been 1 month and 2 days.
    :heeeellll
    Anyone has seen/experienced this here?
    Do you know for how long they will remain out of the charts?
    Anything they can do to fix this?

    Thanks BHW community :cool:

    Hi all,

    I used Iddiction / xplode
    They refunded me after we had several email exchange, but at first they denied.

    We have been out for 2 months.
    I really hope none of you will ever experiment this....
    Pay attention to fake promises...!
