App Store Scam of the Week: ‘AmpMe’

Kosta Eleftheriou has found another apparently multi-million-dollar-grossing app that’s been on the App Store for over three years: a shitty music “volume boosting” music player named AmpMe that costs $10 per week after the three-day trial. Thousands of obviously fake reviews, millions of dollars “earned”. Even worse: Apple has repeatedly featured this app in the App Store.

Again I say: Apple needs an App Store bunco squad that hunts for scam apps, sorted by gross revenue. An app like this should be trivial to find and boot from the store.
