The one who made the app. 1000+ installs

The one who renamed the app, removed credits, copyright notice (MIT license), added ads. 50,000+ installs.

Just was able to download the app from @AmazonAppDev and found out that the entire credits and copyright notice was replaced ! No mention of GPL !

This is a clear GPL violation !

I have now reported this to Amazon via their "Report Infringement" form.

My app is licensed under GPL-3 github.com/subins2000/manglish

I believe this won't be a GPL violation if he would share the source code if asked.

Is it unethical though ? Yes

I don't think this has any impact though. Manglish app is officially available on Play Store & F-Droid

Someone recompiled my Manglish app from GitHub and published it in Amazon's Android App Store.

I saw that this app have internet permission. But my app doesn't have it originally.

Then I found that he had also put ads in it 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Someone ripped the Manglish app logo I made. ഒരു copyright strike ആക്കിയാലോ ? 👀 (seriously tho, I don't mind this usage, a small youtuber)

This input tool tutorial in 2020 is based on ASCII Malayalam font which is the real sad part than the ripoff 🥲

Me, @mujeebcpy & @akshay will be hosting SMC's Developer Calls tomorrow 5PM IST.

I'll be showcasing a new input method for Indian languages (specifically Malayalam for now) I've been working on. Beta testers needed !

കേരളത്തിന്റെ ഒരു പ്രമുഖ ടെക്നിക്കൽ യൂണിവേഴ്സിറ്റിയിൽ നിന്നും ഞാൻ രക്ഷപ്പെട്ടിരിക്കുകയാണ് സുഹൃത്തുക്കളേ ! ഇപ്പോൾ മനസ്സിന് നല്ല സ്വസ്ഥതയുണ്ട്. ഇനി എക്സാമൊന്നും എഴുതേണ്ടല്ലോ !

ജൂണിയേഴ്സിന്റെ എക്സാം രോധനങ്ങൾ കാണുമ്പോൾ വിഷമം തോന്നുന്നു. ഒന്നോർക്കുക, ഈ സമയവും കടന്ന് പോകും.

I'm working on making a shared library in Go. A shared library (In Linux, they end with .so) can be used in any language by dynamic linking. Every language will have a mechanism to interact with C libraries. This means I have to write C code to convert between Go-C types 🥲

പദവികളും അതു നല്കുന്ന അധികാരവും ആനുപാതികമായി ഉത്തരവാദിത്തം നിറഞ്ഞതും ടിയാന്മാരുടെ തീരുമാനങ്ങള്‍ക്കു് ദൂരവ്യാപക ഫലങ്ങളുണ്ടെന്നും മനസ്സിലാക്കാൻ ആ പദവികൾ കയ്യടക്കിയിട്ടുള്ളവർക്ക് കെല്പില്ലാത്തതൊന്നുമല്ല. പൊതുജനത്തിന് നിയമാനുസൃതം ചെയ്യാവുന്നത് indict ചെയ്യുക എന്നതു മാത്രമാവും.

There is the possibility to misuse this power and see whatever is on your screen. Trust is very important here. Beware of apps using this.

You may have seen people with vision impairment using screen readers for using phone. Such screen reader apps use Android's Accessibility API to get data from apps and read it out aloud. Similarly, Manglish app gets text from screen, converts and displays an overlay.

I just released version 7 of Malayalam to Manglish convertor Android app with a new "On Screen Button Conversion" feature. Convert Malayalam text on any app now!*

Is there a better Co-WIN frontend app that uses the API ? An app that auto checks availability and book for you with multi-language support ?

I'm starting to see Python scripts that does this but it would be more equitable if if's a website for tech-illiterate people.
