Back on July 21, 2010 when I was first getting started with mobile app development, I created a little Android app called Super Bored. Over the next few months with updates, improvements and implemented suggestions from users, Super Bored grew into a small mobile forum community. It eventually spun off into new topic-specific discussion apps such as World of Warcraft Discussion, Halo Discussion, Body Building Discussion, and others. Eventually all of these apps merged into one large mobile forum community known simply as Discussions. From the very beginning of Super Bored and through the rise of the unified Discussions app, one man was a constant, towering, and loved figure by the entire community, and that man was lordwyllym.

Ten Years of Ape Apps
About two weeks ago on June 13th was the ten year anniversary since I started Ape Apps. Although I did not fully quit my day job and go full time into app development until 2012, June 13th 2010 was the day I released my very first Android app, Mr. Body. At the time, I had been out of college for just over two years, living with three roommates in Kansas City, Missouri, and working as a full time software developer for a corporate financial institution. The night prior, my roommates and I were playing the board game Clue (aka Cluedo if you aren't in the U.S.), and were running low on the paper score cards that come with the board game. At that point, I got the idea to create a digital version of the score card so that we would never run into this issue again. Thus, the idea for Mr. Body was born.
Pirated Version of PDF Document Scanner on Google Play
I was checking out my download and usage reports this morning, and I noticed a lot of unusual activity coming from my PDF Document Scanner app. After investigating, I discovered that someone has decided to reverse engineer my app and release it under their own account using the name Classic Doc Scanner. You can see the illegitimate copy here:
I've reported the app to Google, although there has been no response or action taken. If anybody has free time on their hands, feel free to report the above app to Google. You can clearly see it is a direct rip of my own PDF Document Scanner classic, which you can see at the link below:
They didn't even bother to take their own screenshots, they just dressed up and reused mine. I am hoping that if Google gets enough reports on the app, it might actually show up on their radar and they will take action.
