but of course for those people who download and use pirated ,crack, nulled apps can be a violation of the IP code so I recommend that you use Legal software/apps and start practicing downloading from the Google play store not on the blackmarket 🙂 if you really don’t want to be penalize by the governement. and please support all the hardwork of the developers out there that create all those stunning apps 🙂
