Inquiring minds want to know: Do I have to worry about any damages to my phone coming from applications from the Marketplace?
It’s important to note that applications on MiKandi are not subject to review and once published, are available within minutes on the marketplace.
Developers assume full responsibility for everything they publish on MiKandi. They want to deliver safe, fun, and sexy apps to you. But things happen. There may be occasional risks and problems with developer applications. Therefore, we encourage users to practice “safe downloading”.
What is Safe Downloading?
You should take precautions before downloading anything (mobile or web). We’ve compiled a short list of helpful guidelines that all should practice.
- Put on your sleuth cap. Research the developer of the application before downloading. Applications in the MiKandi marketplace are not created by MiKandi. Developers use our marketplace to connect with you, the end user. So before you hop into bed with an app, get some deets on the Developer. A Developer’s contact information can be found in the app description. If it’s not, just give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the info.
- Be cautious who you share your location with. Some apps allow you to share your location with the Developer, friends, or public at large. Refer to Guideline #2 and find out why the app you want needs that information. There are many fun apps out there that require access to your location.
- Listen to the tribe. MiKandi’s review process is driven by the community, as opposed to imposing our own review process. We leave the feedback to our community of users. Take note of what other end-users are saying about the app you want.
- Report abuse. Obviously, illegal content is NOT tolerated on MiKandi. If you discover an app with illegal content, please report the app in question at email@example.com
Developers are more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding their application.
