2017/05 - Play Store IP infringement

Google does not have the best reputation when it comes to fogiving app developers on Android Play Store. A quick google search shows us that it can get pretty bad, even if you keep your nose clean. You can't really blame Google for using automation to detect this kind of stuff, since they are pretty huge and everyone and their mother has an app in the Play Store now. It's only going to get worse/better as time goes on (Depends on your viewpoint!). But it's still annoying to have a big project that you spend your free time on rejected after so much effort.

Unfortunately Rotten Alive was rejected for using the same image that another zombie-related game app uses, so I simply removed all images that were free online and replaced them with my own images. An easy fix that took an enjoyable evening back in my hometown of Wexford. So it wasn't so bad in the end!
