I want to throw my arms up and cheer! Finally, the days of searching for Facebook and finding dozens of fake Facebook apps are hopefully behind us. Microsoft is finally making it against the Windows Store policy to make apps that are titled and have tiles to mislead customers into thinking it is an official popular app or game.
For the past two years, the Windows Store has been plagued with fake and misleading apps. For instance, you might find a fake version of the popular game, Temple Run. Such apps disguises itself as Temple Run and tricks users into downloading, or worse purchasing, the app. Once installed, the user finds that the app is nothing more than screenshots of the game Temple Run or a tutorial of Temple Run, written or otherwise. I have seen many such apps on the Windows Store, along with negative reviews by angry customers who were tricked into paying real money for the fake app.
