Bullet Messenger removed from App Store over copyright compliant

Bullet Messenger was removed from the iOS App Store less than two weeks after the first launch. Earlier today, many Chinese netizens found that Bullet Messenger program no longer appears in the research outcome of iOS App Store. Users who have purchased the messaging program can’t download the program too.

Based on local websites, the messaging program has said in reaction it is undergoing a”review process” to get re-launching from the app shop.

Bullet Messenger also posted an announcement concerning the problem, asserting the reason for the removal was since particular images and content supplied by its partner were reported for potential copyright violations. Because of this, Bullet Messenger was temporarily removed from the App Store.

“We’re working together with our partners to describe the problem and will notify the public once the program is available for download,” the firm added it will continue to roll out more applications upgrades from the future.

The company didn’t name the material spouse that has been reported or other details concerning the allegation. The program was unavailable in the program shop in the time of publishing.

Bullet Messenger was dubbed the”WeChat rival” as it initially started in August. The program quickly gained press attention after it snapped China’s iOS App Store graph, and stayed there for 9 days straight. On the other hand, the program’s achievement was short-lived. It was recently reported that Bullet Messenger’s daily downloads have dropped dramatically–from almost 568,000 downloads every day at its height per month before under 6000 downloads every day.

There were red flags. The program was broadly praised for having loose protection settings and for dispersing vulgar and sensual content.

Luo Yonghao, CEO of Smartisan, reacted in a Weibo article (in Chinese) admitting the app’s most fundamental features still require improvement and the program, compared to the explosive popularity it had enjoyed as it first introduced, has entered the period of”steady growth”.
