Google has suspended PixArt Gallery TV App from its Google Play Store on 31-Oct-2020
The suspension is due to the name "PixArt Gallery" sounding similar to another App's name
We do not agree with this complaint or the action taken. How can any developer ensure that millions/billions of Apps will have unique names? There may be overlaps with certain words. Shutting down Apps because "Pix" and "Pics" sound similar, hence, violates a trademark, does not augur well in the internet age. What do you think? Also, we don't think users/customers like yourselves are stupid: even though there are 2 apps, one starts with "Pix" and the other with "Pics" - will you not check what the difference between these apps are, and what you want to buy, spending your hard-earned money? We believe users are intelligent enough to understand differences in product features and will not get confused by their names alone eg., "Pix" vs "Pics"
Our appeals to Google and the complainant did not get a positive response
We are a victim of Google's way of decision-making and the complainant's silly behavior.
We are in the process of releasing a new App with a new name very soon. If you are using the PixArt Gallery TV App, and you like it, and you want to continue using it, please install the new App when it becomes available.
The PixArt Gallery TV App continues to be available on Amazon App Store and Apple App store (for now :))
