Apple has sent a copyright infringement notification to Google getting them to pull an iOS Control Center like app from the Google Play store, reports BGR.

"Control Center developer Hi Tools Studio has contacted BGR via email to state that its original Control Center app has been pulled from the Google Play store. A Hi Tools Studio spokesperson says Google pulled the app after receiving a complaint from Apple and he forwarded an email from Google"

Apple owns the copyright in its iOS software and each of the features thereof. The aforementioned application infringes Apple Inc.’s (“Apple”) copyright rights in the iOS 7 software.

Represented_copyright_holder: Apple Inc.


Even though Google pulled the app, a new 2.0 version of the app has been submitted and is now live on the Google Play store.

The funny part about this ... Apple hasn't done shit... Unlike apples locked down system... People in android will still be able to download this app and install and use with or without googles apples or anyone's permission. Just like a jailbroken iphone has been able to do "control center" functions since iphone 3G yea that's right since 200 fuking 8
