I can still sort my portfolio by Commission and Commission Avg. I’m curious to see how long is going to take before they take it down..! =)

Now that you told them it will be soon.

Hi doru, did you try to unsubscribe from their emails ?

If I login on the site I need to provide an api key. I don’t do that again, just wanted my account removed and off course those emails will go away, I think.

I’ve had this issue for months. I signed up for a trial 6-7 months ago-ish, and I didn’t really find it useful so I let it go. Ever since I’ve been getting emails that either show someone else’s statistics, or show no data at all. Though this is my old email so I have pretty much forgotten about it.

oh, just great :|

And I was expecting them to answer my request.

I don’t think google check the apps on their marketplace. Imagine the volume of work of verifying each app when is first uploaded on their store and each time the app is updated (quite a lot of updates for each app from my experience of using Android)

Practically they don’t do it. and then you get examples like this: http://blogs.mcafee.com/consumer/android-flashlight-app-steals-data

In my opinion downloading each time the entire app was not chosen as a security issue.

I think I’ve made the account at the start of September, but deleted the API key on the same day. Then they start sending me these mails that looks like information from another user so I finally had enough and asked them to delete my account (and stop sending the mails)

Unfortunately no answer from them. Now, they can keep the account and I will mark the mails as spam each time they show up but I really didn’t liked the way they treated my situation. If someone ask you to delete the account then delete that account and stop sending me those mails.

nope, I don’t talk about Android itself but about the apps you’ve downloaded from the appstore

Found out about them from this post

http://videohive.net/forums/thread/the-sales-monitor/51465?page=505#1114192

Unfortunately had the bad idea to make an account there. Sorry misled, I know is not your fault.

Anyway, made an account and tested the website but I didn’t like it. I think I’ve deleted all the api keys that they know about, anyway, each week they send me what is called “SalesGenius Weekly Sales report” that show some random stats, I’m assuming from other users they have, see example bellow:

Hi doru

Here is a summary of your sales for the week of October 13 2014:

    Total revenue: $ xxx
    Total sales: x
    Avg. sales per day: xx($xxx)
    Highest selling item: edit: -- item of another user I will contact him privately xx

For more insights, login to your SalesGenius.co account. We hope next week is a successful one for you, good luck!

Regards,
The SalesGenius Team 

I don’t have a “the items they talk about” and those stats are not my own. (I think those are the stats of - edit I’ve removed the user I will contact him privately -

anyway :)

I’ve send them a request, using the contact form on their website, and asked them to stop sending me these emails as I don’t like them and don’t need them and also to delete my account from their website.

Unfortunately got no answer so, for now I’ve market these messages as spam, but other authors please be warned about this website.

edit: hidden financial info from the quote mail (but the numbers are there) and I’ve checked previous weekly messages they send me and the Highest selling item items have the same names as those from - removed see above - portfolio so I can be pretty sure, is his info.

just for reference we are in October of 2014. Internet was created in the 70s, finally started to expand in the 90s, become big around 2000 and now as I’ve said we are in 2014 quite close of 2015. Yet Android updates just download the entire applications again instead of what was really updated inside the app (sometime like just a new language pack that you will never use, or some icons or (this is funny) they give you the update so they can be able to change the terms of use.

If you have a mobile internet, with limited Gb plan, depending on the number of applications installed, a big cut of your precious data plan get lost in downloading again and again full applications. Why they call this update is beyond me. They should call this: Waste of Internet plan.
