EverTrack App Removed from Play Store
At Sunday down we received an email from Google that they have marked EverTrack app as a spyware and they think this app is ideal for spying activities so they removed it from Play Store. We weren’t worried, sure that it’s a misunderstanding and we have the right to appeal against the decision.
We replied to the email as soon as we could to solve this misunderstanding, but we were surprised when we received an automatically generated answer that Google checked the app and they won’t accept our appeal, they will not reinstate the app and their decision is final.
Ignoring the fact that they told that the decision is final we have been trying to get in contact with Play Developer team in email but we haven’t received any answer from them. It seems that the issue is closed and they think that it’s fair that way.
Why EverTrack is a Spyware?
Frankly we don’t have any idea about why Google think that EverTrack app is a spyware and they don’t tell any details about it.
- To use our app the user needs to accept an invitation sent by the administrator before they can use the app.
- After EverTrack installed the user can turn it off and on
- The user can delete the app anytime
- When the app is running the CorvusGPS icon always displayed at the top bar
- The app isn’t able to run in background
- The name of the app is clear and simple, not similar to any system process or other app
These criteria exactly meeting the Google’s requirements for a legal tracking app. Using of EverTrack for any spying activity is prohibited by our Terms and Conditions what the user must accept when they register. We already tested EverTrack with Spyware scanner apps from Play Store but nothing found!
EverTrack is not a Spy app!
EverTrack is an app developed with business purposes to manage vehicle fleets and workforces easily to ensure the efficiency of companies.
EverTrack is available again!
From the weekend happenings we are working to recover the app from it’s ashes and we are happy to announce that EverTrack is available to download again from our website and we will also upload it to other app stores (Amazon, Blackberry) soon. We won’t give it up – we will be back on Play Store but it might take some time.
Two years of work and nearly 100.000 downloads and 800 ratings thanks to you. And it was permanently removed by Google in a blink of an eye, so now we need some help…
