Google axes 60K rubbish apps in massive Google Play purge

CNETAnalysis: Google hit a record high for removing rubbish apps from the Google Play store in February, deleting around 60,000 spam, low quality or otherwise crap apps. That marks the biggest purge Google’s digital app store has ever seen, according to TechCrunch . Compared to Apple’s iOS app store, the Google Play marketplace has always been a bit of a wasteland, without the strict vetting system that Apple has in place. The cream Android apps have always tended to rise to the top of Google Play, but there was always that seedy underbelly of sour milk . Not anymore? TechCrunch’s report came yesterday by way of “a company in the mobile app industry which has insight into changes like this.” TechCrunch told TechRadar that the company requested anonymity. The site also reported that Google’s automated algorithms to detect spam apps have been steadily improving. The Google Play Android app store is great for developers who don’t want to bother with Apple’s strict guidelines and sometimes bothersome approval process, but that same system also opens the door for less reputable app makers to flood the space with rotten creations. The recent purge of garbage Android apps could be simply due to Google getting better at detecting them, or it could be part of a concentrated effort on Google’s part to spruce the place up. In fact, the change in policy could have something to do with rumors of the Google Play 4.0 redesign arriving alongside Android 5.0: Key Lime Pie , possibly by summer. Either way, it seems the Google Play marketplace is only getting better.

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam
Neend nahi, chain nahi
Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
