    Hello guys! with no further talk, I've seen this app in the google play store for a while now and I kept wondering how he tricked google play and passed an illegal keyword in the title and description and an illegal Icon...
    the app called: Tutuapp, google it in google play store and you'll find it
    Can someone please help understand how he did?

    Not much on description but bunny as icon will/should get it flagged. It's wierd that too an famous app survives even after many updates.
    Two of my apps got suspended for really small mistakes.

    Google is always friendly to big developers.

    ASO is app store optimization for app on google play store or apple store

    Yeaah! man, I really wanna know how he did it actually... and probably you too.

    Can someone please help me?

    I have no idea how this got there, Tutuapp is a illegal app. Confusing, Guess this just proves if you know the right people and can do the right things anythings possible. Goodluck OP ;)

    Probably no one will help me here unfortunately :(, even if they know it.

    Not into ASO or android too much.
    But I guess the app wont survive for long, if you doubt then just keep a eye on it.
    Also do you have any idea how long the app is up on playstore?

    Maybe the app hasnt went into manual check yet due to the number of downloads and reviews its getting.

    this has nothing to do with black hat aso , ..

    this is "SPAM" , and if you're asking , how to upload spam "illegal " icon and spam "illegal " keywords and shi*ts , search for API Consol update.

    you can upload whatever you want using API .

    THE MAIN idea here is , time = money .

    So the app i already on the store for 3 weeks , he made some money .
    so if the app got suspanded , then he already got money to buy another ggl play account and do the same thing.
