If this messages were to fall on anyone's deaf ears, it should be Google itself.Tim Cook has poured more fuel into the Apple vs. Android debate by claiming Google's OS has 47 times more malware than Cueprtino's, primarily because of how difficult iOS makes sideloading apps. He added that if Apple was forced to allow the practice, it would destroy the security of the iPhone.
Google is quite aware of, (and allows) app side loading. It would seem to be in their best interest to evaluate these apps, and get rid of then, or at the very least, publish a list of the dangerous ones. While that would cost money, and possibly cut into their app store profits, it would ultimately function to shut Tim Cook up.
That would be worth far more than the investment, IMHO
