Is your Android app on BlackBerry App World without you knowing?

Engadget is running a piece on how white label store Handster has been submitting Android apps to the BlackBerry App World, without any consent from the app developers or owners.

This was discovered after Engadget was notified by developer Steve Troughton-Smith that Dolphin HD had been submitted to App World by white label store Handster (owned by Opera).

Engadget contacted the developers of Dolphin HD browser, MoboTap, who confirmed they didn’t authorize any submission by Handster. A MoboTrap spokesman told Engadget: “We do not condone Handster submitting our Dolphin Browser app to BlackBerry’s App World for us and are currently working to take it down and assure Handster will not submit our app for us again. We will assess developing for BlackBerry when the time is right.”

Performing a search on BlackBerry App World for “Handster” returns more than 500 apps, a lot of the app names still containing the developer’s details.
