I just noticed a "Microsoft Word 2012" app on the app store while browsing AppShopper. I checked it on the store and it is obviously a scam. How did this app even make it to the store? I don't see how an app advertised as "All features of the MAC version on your device", but obviously does not  makes it onto the store. I see that they creatively spelled MAC in all capital letters, as in MAC address, for example, and not Mac.

 

I also read on a app-dedicated website that not only this, but a "Cydia" scam app appeared on the store recently. Some readers responded to the article with the same concerns. Someone said that they are going to call Apple about this.

 

Are these scam apps going to become a problem with the App Store? Are they being caught fairly quickly?
