We received an email from a reader about apps made by “Toan Tran” and “Dung Bui” purporting to be Halo 4 for iOS and turns out to be a racing game or a chess game (depending on which one you’re duped into buying).
TechCrunch has screenshots of what you get for your $5:
Like TC, we won’t link to the games but, here are screenshots of the two offending apps so you know not to get them:
The app from Toan Tran is universal and Dung Bui is iPhone only. They share the same icon (and price).
What makes this all the more galling is that the App Store freeze just kicked in and in theory there won’t be any changes to the App Store until the 28th. TechCrunch reached out to their contacts at Apple to hopefully get these apps pulled before the mad holiday rush of app buying hits.
Thanks Juan for the tip!
