Analysis of a Fake Threema App

It doesn’t fucking help that the playstore just pretends that apps which are incompatible with your device just don’t exist. That fake app requires Android > 4.4. For the real app it “varies by device”. In the end, searching for an app that you know exists and looking through the search results trying to figure out which one is real is not enough. I cannot tell how often I run into this problem, including some banking apps (looking at you Revolut, you POS still owe me money and you can’t even tell me what phone I should buy/Android version I should install to being able to communicate with you or even look up my balance).

Thanks Google for being of absolutely no help at all. I’m pretty sure plenty of people installed that fake crap just because you decide to hide the real one from them.
