is there any risk sending someone my published apk?

edited August 2014 in General Discussion
I'm getting some support from someone in a country where my app isn't published, so he can't download it from Google Play to review the app. Is there any risk in sending him a copy of the apk file?


  • Hi @pdog, none at all.
  • Depends on what you're worried about risking. Pictures and audio files can easily be extracted out of it, for example. And it could be published somewhere that you haven't already submitted it to under his name.
  • That's a different story, yes. There is a growing trend on GP of app copying. Lots of guys, including me, are getting ripped 1:1. They must be doing it by using some kind of software. They even use exact same descriptions, screenshots, everything.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?
  • I just made a test app with the issue I'm having so not too concerned. Thanks.
