Stellarium being sold on the App Store

  • Anonymous - 2013-09-04

    Was surprised to see Stellarium on the Apple App Store being sold for $19.99 by "luo hui". As far as I can tell, it's the desktop version (not the mobile apps, which I know are separate branches). What's the deal? Is someone trying to pass this off as their own software and make money off it?

    I'm not surprised considering the amount of "VLC"-like paid apps in the stores (both android and ios)

    VLC for example made a big mistake when they posted the app (and the code for it) and then pulled it. I'm pretty sure most of those copy-cats just grabbed the code and republished it, scamming thousands of people that bought apps which are just a copy-paste of open source code.

    You guys should complain to the AppStore and/or write a review (you need an AppleID for that)

      Unfortunately, you have to actually purchase the software before you can submit a review.
