There are lots of other apps in Android market or Google play but not all of those are easily verifiable. Some has horrible look whereas few others are lacking even in the basic functionalities. There are lots of publishers where the credentials can’t be verified and that are one big risk. You wouldn’t want to send your financial data to any stranger, right? In fact there are lots of fraudulent individuals who are launching fake applications to gain these data from the innocent users. Few days ago, a fake Blackberry messenger was launched in Android market and even before Google could take any action, there was 1 million download already. Few months ago, fake Angry Birds game hit the store and the same day millions of people downloaded the fake game and was victimised by giving away all personal details to an unknown publisher.
