Google and Apple both set to ban apps using this sketchy monetization SDK
Apple and Google have both taken the exceptional step of banning any apps that include X-Mode’s software from their respective app stores, according to The Wall Street Journal. The news comes after investigations revealed location data gathered by X-Mode in those apps were sold to parties with ties to the US government and national security efforts. Play Store developers have one week to comply before the banhammer falls.
X-Mode, for the unfamiliar, markets itself to developers as a source of ad-free revenue.
