That’s how much people saved by downloading free Android app called Android.Walkinwat from unofficial venues rather than the real app, Walk and Text, from the Android market. Once downloaded and installed, the app redirects you to the actual app on the Android marketplace.
Then, it sends an SMS message to all of your contacts:
Hey,just downlaoded [sic] a pirated app off the internet, Walk and Text for Android. Im stupid and cheap, it costed only 1 buck. Dont steal like I did!
As our friends over at HotHardware said, it’s Shameware.
There are certain precautions people should take when downloading legally. Downloading illegally is in a whole other realm. There are those who want a completely free Internet and mobile experience just as there are organizations promoting such concepts. Until that day comes, learn the lesson here: download from official venues only. Does it cost money? Sometimes. Does it make you more secure and potentially less embarrassed?
