    Exclamation Samsung Apps Suspended me for using Airpush SDK ??

    Samsung Apps 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,may be 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(crap,I really loved Airpush and their weekly).

    Yeah, they can detect which sdk can send push notifications.. So, for example Leadbolt devided their sdks, which has push notiications.. SO it is time for all other Ad Companies to seperate their sdks.. I have no idea why they dont do it. In addition to get suspended all antiviruses will detect the app as a virus..) so, maybe some official representatives here will answer why they dont do it?

    I also had apps suspended. Of course they dont consider if you are sending notifications.. they only look for the SDK. I republished using appbrain wall but I don't know their performance yet..

    Would you say that it's worth the time to publish to Samsung?

    Do these users have acces to Google Play? Doesn't appbrain only pay per install from Google play?

    Many ads (even admob) redirect to apps in google play.. I am still waiting the review process and I let you know if the apps were denied..

    Vitoralm,

    I think Kevin was saying that you only get paid per install with AppBrain- If the user doesn't have Google Play installed you wouldn't make any money with AppBrain.

    Unfortunately there is a large number of devices without Google Play. All Kindle devices have only Amazon AppStore, many Chinese tablets and phones don't have Google Play and use other stores, some old tablets also don't have Google Play. All Samsung Android phones and tablets have both Samsung Apps and Google Play though.
