I think this is false positive from google. Google says the app was removed for:

 

 

 

Your app is uploading users' installed application information to https://a.appbaqend.com/stats without a prominent disclosure. 

 

Here is the data that was being sent to that URL. I highlighted the only thing I question. There are some other personal data but Google didn't complain about those yet.

plugin.appodeal: 1.6.5b (SDK: 2.5.1)

 

And this is what the data for the new version looks like. I don't really see any glaring difference.

I can confirm that the Appodeal modular and beta plugins were updated to 2.5.1 yesterday. For the best results, you should use 2019.3462 or later.

why you didn't post your app in other stores?

Rob, did they only make this change on Android? Because I was just testing to release an update on iOS and Android, and I can see that iOS is still using 2.5.0 from the console logs. I am adding a GDPR consent screen to both and releasing a new version. I assumed that the underlying problem (the root cause here) existed on both platforms with one (or some) of the underlying Ad Network SDKs. If not, and they know that for certain, then I guess it's fine, but it is a little unconventional to have a newer release on Android and an older one on iOS.

@uptrivial I do have some of my other apps in other store. If I had a large team it would probably be more profitable but my experience so far has been that the problems I have in Google store are only worse in those other android stores:

1. No easy way to monitize. Nobody downloads anything that isn't free. No ad network plugin available for Corona. The all have their own IAP solutions that again is not available in Corona.

2. No easy way to aquire users. No ad networks that support them or no ad network that have plugin available for Corona.

 

I can make plugins but I have limited time so unless I have a clear path to making money I usually don't bother. I don't want to do native builds again because I am just one person coding. Now if somebody shows me a proven path with the type of apps I like to build then I would gladly follow it regardless of what plugins I have to build.

Ray, it looks like this was an Android Jar fix. There is also a change in defaults for hasUserConsent.

you can contact me and we can discuss some details of posting your apps on my app store if you interesting, of course
