The big-name Android app, which was taken off the Play Store by Google, is not uncommon, but it has sometimes caused some controversy. Recently, for example, the open source BT client LibreTorrent was inexplicably shot. The developer said it received an email notification that the app had been taken off the Play Store. It’s strange that LibreTorrent is labeled spam, but that it’s googled as “copying other apps in the store.” Apparently, this is related to a screening error at the Play Store.

The genuine Li Wei was killed by Li Ghost this kind of thing, it is a little difficult to understand. But it really happened on the Google Play Store.
The developers point out that other fake LibreTorrent apps in the Ming play store are ‘shanzhai ad machines with a vest and no proprietary features’, but Google has pulled the original LibreTorrent app down.
Given the occasional occurrence of such killings, developers initially chose to communicate with Google to lift the restrictions. As a result, Google’s response was a shock, with The LibreTorrent being a “repeat submission.”
We reviewed your complaint and found that your app still violates Google Play’s anti-spam policy, and the Play Store does not allow such duplicate or low-quality apps to be on the shelves.
Yaroslav Pronin says it’s hard to understand Google’s approach, after all, as a developer of the genuine LibreTorrent app, he has previously reported some clone apps that officials will remove after verification.
But now it’s a case where the developers who speculated on cloning apps, and in turn, reported Pronin! As a result, Google’s White Eye Auditor only looks at the name, regardless of the facts, directly and arbitrarily to its identification of that ‘wrong application’ to delete!
In the end, Pronin had only one option left — to resubmit the LibreTorrent app, which changed its new name.
Doing so, however, would result in a loss of brand value and previous statistics, leading to a flood of unknown users flocking to Li’s embrace.
Given the imminent release of LibreTorrent 2.0, this will undoubtedly cause great inconvenience.
