    Samsung Apps Store is suspending apps

    Hi guys,
    I have apps in Samsung Apps Store and this week I've been surprised with the suspension of some of them. I suspect that it is due to push notification ads, as the new policy forbids this type of ad. Anyone experienced the same issue?

    Just got 2 of my games with airpush ads suspended today.

    It looks like they are reviewing all apps.

    Time to clean up our apps I guess, it might just be a matter of time before other markets also start the clean up process.

    My apps which are include push ads are suspended too.
    Only push ads are not allowed, other types like Icon ads are allowed. (Ex: StartApp)

    In this case, it would be nice if Airpush split icon and push ads in separate APIs.

    True, good for existing SDK users though cause there's less competition. That may be why they never followed through with it, so that their eCPMs remained higher for devs.

    They suspended my app which was #4 in top free list for push ads(there is a recent policy change of not allowing push ads)..

    And what really su*ks is that I have never called a push Ad(not from my app and it is disabled from airpush dashboard too)..I have only used smartwall from airpush(that too only 1 in every 3rd App use)....
    And believe me when I say,there is no use saying it to their customer care guys,.I have already send 3 tickets informing it..they replied with useless mails..

    So basically they suspended me for using Airpush SDK..

    I don't know if a smartwall-alone sdk would help..can they detect push ads in sdks?
    if yes,its time Airpush release smartwall-alone sdk,because the only choice i can take right now for my app on samsung apps is switching to Admob.
