Pirated app on BB World?

[ Edited ]

Where would one report a possible pirated app on BB World? The one in question appears to be a blatant repackaging of Candy Crush Saga, which has not officially come to BB10. It has eleven 5-star reviews, all of which suspiciously use the exact same broken English grammar.

 

To add insult to injury if this is indeed a pirated app, it has a cost of $0.99 and is on the current BB World highest-grossing list.

 

I don't see how a pirated app could have been accepted to BB World, but there is something very fishy about this one.

Yes, there is. What   reports is true.

 

, I would recommend you report the app to one of the developer advisors in this developer section of the forum.

@JSanders... ah, so it's not just me. I purposely didn't name the app in case I was wrong. I dropped a private message to one of the dev advisors that has posted in this forum.

BlackBerry seems to have pulled the offending app so I guess I was right.
