Google removes Boost for Reddit from the Play Store because it promotes illegal drugs

Once again it seems that the automatic mechanisms that Google uses to determine violations of the policy Play Store  are not infallible results. At the expense this time it was  Boost for Reddit , a client that has 100,000 to 500,000 installations, demonstrating the good quality of the application.

The application was removed from the Play Store last week for having violated the store policy regarding illegal activities. According to a report in the email sent by Google to the developer,  Boost for Reddit was removed for promoting the sale of illegal drugs, the illegal sale of prescriptions have encouraged the sale of drugs, alcohol and tobacco to minors and for providing instructions to cultivate or produce illegal drugs.

In fact, the application has nothing to do with the allegations as it is simply a client for Reddit and does not have their servers on which the offending content is stored. It is true that there are some activities that promote subreddit lawful but not really the responsibility of their content it definitely can not be attributed to the Boost developer.

Meanwhile there is an updated version of its on Reddit, or if you prefer to APKmirror, waiting for Google to clarify the issue and carry the app on the Play Store.
