When there are issues with apps in the store

For some reason, my post on How to respond to bad apps? has been very popular recently. This is quite timely as I thought it might be worth re-documenting how to deal with apps that probably shouldn't be in the store. This subject comes up regularly whenever a questionable (for whatever reason) app appears in the store.

If another app or game in the store infringes YOUR copyright, trademarks or other intellectual property you should report this to Microsoft using the details in MSDN.

If you notice an app "that seems suspicious" (probably shouldn't have got through certification) you can raise this by emailing

If you've built Windows Phone or Windows Store apps you can cross-promote them with AdDuplex to get more users.
