@ParadeGrotesque Weird article. No one accidentally clones another apps source code, alters the branding and republishes it; without realizing their not creating their own app.
12 year old or not.
@ParadeGrotesque I could get the kid not understanding the implications of doing so.
Just its wierd how this article talks about a kid inadvertently cloning the app. Like thats a thing that can happen.
