On December 20, a fake Spotify app surfaced in the Marketplace. It is published by a user called khanamish and is selling for $.99, as opposed the official Spotify, which can be downloaded for free. Other signs to look for to differentiate between the two are that the real Spotify is listed with a capital "S" in the title and uses the Spotify logo, whereas the fake one's icon actually has the word "Spotify" as its icon. The fake also only has two reviews, one of which flat out calls it a scam. We're not exactly ready to do that ourselves, but we will question the developer's motives and tell you to steer clear of it. At the very least, why pay when you can the official app at no cost?
Khanamish has two other apps in the Marketplace, Stock Today and AllSportz. Both have the same look as the Spotify rip-off, but both are free, so maybe they are legit. We're not looking to make trouble for any devs, but khanamish's Spotify app is dubious and warrants being called out. If anyone out there has used this or any other app by this developer, we'd certainly like to get your feedback.
Thanks to Den for alerting us to this!
Got $200? If so, you can afford one of these excellent displays.
Getting a great PC monitor doesn't mean you have to spend megabucks. There are naturally some compromises, and you won't get 4K in that price range. But that's not always a bad thing. These are the best options for less than $200.
