Get fake Netflix, Hulu Plus and AllCast apps from Google Play Store – for free

It doesn’t stop at Flappy Bird, someone is trying really hard to exploit the popularity of ClockWordMod under the very nose of Google. Some app developer with name ‘ClworkMod Inc’ has published three apps on Google Play Store and these are not some unknown apps. These are none other than Hulo Plus, Netflix and AllCast.

All these apps are available for free of cost and need access to GPS, full network access, phone records as well as write permission on storage.

The ‘scam’ was probably spotted by Koushik Dutta of CyanogenMod. Google is quite strict about fake apps so it’s interesting how these apps with trademarked names like Hulu Plus and Netflix made into the Play Store. The apps seemed to be made available yesterday (March 8). Google will soon be kicking them out, there is no doubt about it.
