  • 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.

      Why the hell does apple let bs like this in the app store yet not the actual IntelliscreenX or any other tweaks for that matter? Just seems like apple likes to watch people get scammed and not have extra features on their iOS devices.

      Unfortunately, even though Apple should accept some of the blame for allowing the app in the App Store in the first place, it is the app developer "JB Solutions" that has ripped users off; not Apple.

      Apple needs to tighten up application approval.

      As long as Apple get a piece of the pie they could care less about the victimized consumer. Greed will eventually lead to their downfall.

      Hey now. That's rather incriminating.

      I've been able to get refunds from the iTunes Store through Apple over the phone before. They also do their part and remove the apps when enough complaints surface.

      It's understandable that there are a ton of applications being submitted each day, but they should increase their efficiency at keeping junk like this out of the App Store. Just think, this is only one of many applications that might be getting submitted to the App Store that mimic jailbreak tweaks and try to sell out before getting pulled. One may slip through the cracks once in a while, but they never last that long.

      Apple also has no problem approving multiple updates for these total scams, which can only be to eliminate honest reviews. Disgusting considering they make damn sure they don't approve any real "JB Solutions".

      Doesnt seem like they care much. I was told that the app store guys review all the submitted apps before releasing them. How can this slip through especially for such an important app like intelliscreen x.

      It's not even possible to develop an app with these capabilities for apple unless its open sourced.

      Also guys crap like this happens a lot it's not a perfect AppStore. If it was we wouldn't be able to get leaked tethering apps!

      Is this what I need to get rid of the clock on my lockscreen? 3gs running 4.3.3. Some themes are able to change the background and slider design, but the clock is an ever present constant that's driving me nuts.

      I wished apple could put a "report this app" on app store. This would be much easier to eliminate problems like that.
