Google deletes Adamu Garba’s social media app from Play Store

Must read

Google has deleted a home-grown social media app, known as Crowwe from its Play Store.

The still-born app, which imitates Twitter, is owned by Nigeria’s Adamu Garba, who later explained in an interview with Punch that he actually requested Google to remove the app to enable him “update the code”.

The app had received horrible reviews from Nigerians after Garba supported the suspension of Twitter use in Nigeria.

Garba had, following the suspension, encouraged Nigerians to support his indigenous social media app by downloading it from the Play Store.

Not only did the app receive horrible reviews, Nigerians also reported that Crowwe’s terms and conditions were plagiarised word for word from another app, Spotify.

The discovery was also verified by Dubawa, a fact-checking platform, to be true.

“Check the Crowwe app’s terms and conditions. It’s the SAME thing as Spotify. They didn’t even bother editing. Like if you click on the hyperlink it redirects you to Spotify theft. What sort of pangolo app is that?” a Twitter user wrote, tagging Spotify.

Right now, Garba’s Crowwe app, which has been described as an instant messaging and financial transaction app that comes with a digital wallet that helps to transfer and receive money while chatting, is no longer available on the Google Play Store.

Google removes from the Play Store applications that are perceived to have violated its policy.

“Once your app is removed, the published version of your app won’t be available on Google Play until a compliant update is submitted.

“Until a policy violation has been fixed, don’t republish a removed app,” Google Play Store policy reads.
