Microsoft has begun to re-analyse their policies regarding app submissions to the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store after a few online bloggers and one Forbes contributor pointed out how messed up the store has become with a huge amount of fake applications, fake services and fake fakes that are designed specifically to foist off your credit card details and charge you insane amounts of money for something that should be otherwise free. Microsoft says that they’ve “taken the feedback seriously” and will adjust the app certification requirements as a “first step toward better ensuring that apps are named and described in a way that doesn’t misrepresent their purpose.” So, no more paying $14.99 for VLC Player, then.
