  • Fake IntelliScreenX App Lands in the App Store


    The popular jailbreak application IntelliScreenX, by intelliborn, now sees its very own fake application in the App Store. There have been several instances recently where the App Store has been offering fake jailbreak applications, such as the most recent Cydia wannabe.

    The fake application attempts to sell itself as the popular lock screen and Notification Center-enhancing application in Cydia, which usually costs $9.99, for 99˘. The screenshots also appear to show the real IntelliScreenX on a jailbroken device.

    Users that have been fooled into purchasing the application are leaving foul reviews, sharing that the application is nothing more than a clock and is nothing of what it was advertised to be in the application description and screenshots.

    We advise that everyone avoids this application and doesn’t give the developer any incentive to make money off of the obvious scam and ripoff of intelliborn's graphics. IntelliScreenX is, and will likely always be, only available in Cydia.

    Hopefully Apple pulls this application from the App Store as soon as possible.

      Every time this happens and I watch ppl's reaction especially stock device wielding Apple fan-girls, it reminds me of a shell shocked kid asking daddy why the steps he took to secure the house didn't work as they both watch the robber riffle through mom's underwear draw! LOL!

      So, stop bashing Android. Don't feel so safe. The crooks ultimately want to separate you from your dollar/s and Apple's walled garden is just as vulnerable, see...

      Oddly enough, you're the only person in here to a) attempt to insult anyone and most importantly b) mention Android at all...

      Authors/developers of the REAL tweaks on Cydia should sue Apple. Perhaps a warning to all Cydia developers to take out patents on their work!

      Yes, Apple does need to tighten up Application security. I mean how many times a year does Mmi post about applications getting in that should not be there? Too many.

      I'm pretty sure developers get paid every 30 days. So as it is now this guy has gotten no money.
      If all apps are reviewed how did this get passed? They would have had to see it didn't do what it claimed.

      Clockhide in cydia. It's free.

      Why does it have a 3.5/5 star review if it's fake? They must have paid several people to buy it and give it 5-star reviews to sucker other people in.

      I apologize for the poor opening sentence structure in the second paragraph. It should have said "So to all those android bashers." You gotta at least admit that the visual parody painted by the scenario in the first paragraph was pretty sweet, yes?

      PS I would be a sick article writer for MMi

      Because the developer made a ton of Apple IDs and reviewed his own application. Just another part of the scam made to trick people.

      Lol so I noticed they bumped the price up from 99˘ to $1.99.

      Intelliborn issued a take down request. It shouldn't be long before the app is removed.
