    Sounds like you didn't about LVL licensing and implement LVL based
    restrictions to prevent this.

    In this scenario, the "other users" are stuck with the ripped version of
    the app. They cannot update it via Google Play. If an update becomes
    available, they will have to pay for it, or wait for "A" to re-redistribute
    the update to them.

    Where is this advice? I thought the advice was to use the LVL.

    I suppose you could say that LVL is a type of service that implements this,
    but it seems like a particularly streamlined way of doing so..

    I think you just insulted me, but it's hard to tell through your horrible
    grammar and spelling. I'll assume what you meant was "you're right" and
    "I'm sorry". In which case, I thank you and accept your apology.

    Hi,
     
    My app rating is being hijacked by competitors and I don't know what to do
    :(
    I've tried to contact Google but there's no category for that and they
    don't answer from the other category contact :(
     
    My app is 4.9 rating since a very very very long time and all very very few
    bad rating always had comments.
    Since 14 days I start to have lot's of 1 or 2 stars rating without any
    comments and without having released a new version or the app having
    problems.
    There's still the same amount of 4 / 5 star rating coming every day.
     
    This graph for the 6 last months from Play Store console
    : http://postimg.org/image/i2bpm94vt/ shows the problem clearly and proves
    without a doubt the hijacking action :(
     
    What are the possible actions against that ?
    This is a shame that years of work can be attacked so easily :(
     
    How to contact some Google representative to have this investigated ?
     
    Regards,
    Tolriq

    I have observed something exactly like you describe in my own app.
    The graph you posted is similar to mine.
    I had stable ratings since forever until Dec 11th where unexplained 1-star
    ratings started to appear until the ratings finally stabilized (flat graph)
    on Dec 21th.
    At first I though it was an attack from competitors but now I think there
    might be another explanation.
    Dec 10th, Google approved a batch of Chromecast apps. My app is an obvious
    candidate from Chromecast support but of course it is not
    in the app list Google approved this day. I now think that the unexplained
    bad ratings came from users expecting Chromecast support.
    Since I believe your app is a potential candidate for Chromecast support,
    that could be it. Many CC users do not understand why some apps
    supports CC already and others do not and go the 1-star route. They just
    think developers are lazy or something...
     
    I wouldn't care too much (unless drop in ratings continue) since your app
    is rated exceptionnaly high and a 0.03 drop in rating is not going to have
    much consequence.

    I have a free Lite edition and paid Premium edition of my app. The Premium
    edition is supposed to import any existing data from the Lite edition when
    it first runs. What tools can help me automate testing of this use case?
    Can I do this with JUnit?

    Thanks !! I'm sorry, I have to search better, I had not found any detection
    camera code.

    I would like to create an Audiobook as an app. I wonder if I would be
    breaching the terms of service ?
    I would like it to be completely self contained such that after
    installation all the data as well as the app is on the phone.
    I have searched far and wide in the forum and the Google legalese to find
    what can and cannot be made into an app, and I can't find anywhere if this
    is a questionable practice.

    If this is your own original work, why would this be "questionable"?

    No completely my own work, with me owning the copywrite.

    Hi Alex,
     
    i have make so many dictionaries,
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=iGeniusDev&hl=en, right now
    i am using SimpleCursorAdapter, but after, i got that i must use
    CursorLoader for better performance,
     
    So, my problem is that i do not know what will be ContentUri, and
    ContentProvider for my application, because i am using existing database
    and start reading from that,
    I am very thankful to you if you provide me help regarding this project,
     
     
    Also i have searched in stackoverflow that some person don't want to use
    ContentProvider (
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7182485/usage-cursorloader-without-contentprovider) in
    CursorLoader, can you tell me why thay are don't want to use?
    because if they don't provide than it will be create some problem also
