Sorry to have to bring this type of administrative problem to the Forum, but you all should know...
In another thread, you will read:
I've updated the Play Store version to enable Google Earth and switched it to the icons used by all the other versions.
This action also appears to have included renaming his version to "OpenCPN".
This seems to have caused an immediate name collision
, and the original OpenCPN
app was removed almost immediately by Google
for "interference with another app".
Now I believe Google
has removed the wrong OpenCPN
app in error, and I am attempting to get Google to rectify this situation.
There may be another "interference" reason that OpenCPN was removed from the Play Store, and I am attempting to determine from Google the specifics. But lets all understand this: If original OpenCPN is interfering with something, so is OpenCPN free, since "free" is a simple repackaging/resigning of the original APK.
But I have to say that I think the "interference" is likely over the user-visible name. And I think the shoe goes on the other foot.
So I respectfully request that the publisher of the free version rename his app to something other than "OpenCPN", so that users may clearly understand the difference and make their choice freely.
Thanks, and now back to good old technical work...
