Spam and Minimum Functionality

Spam and Minimum Functionality

At a minimum, apps should provide users with a basic degree of functionality and a respectful user experience. Apps that crash, exhibit other behavior that is not consistent with a functional user experience, or that serve only to spam users or Google Play are not apps that expand the catalog in a meaningful way.

Minimum Functionality

Ensure your app provides a stable, engaging, responsive user experience.

Here are some examples of common violations:


  • Apps that are designed to do nothing or have no function

  • expand_more Broken Functionality

    We don’t allow apps that crash, force close, freeze, or otherwise function abnormally.
