Chrome Browser App for Windows Phone is a Scam

I was browsing the Marketplace recently I had noticed an app called Chrome Browser. I just though it was probably a shortcut to IE for those embarrassed to have “Internet Explorer” on their start screens. Turns out this app cost $2 and claims to be the same as the desktop version of Chrome.  Obviously this isn’t true, and it’s easy to tell that just by looking at a screenshot.

This is another good example of why you should always look at screenshots and read user reviews before downloading any app, especially if you’re laying down some money for it. Common sense can also go a long way. We know not everyone is up on the latest news, but if something looks or sounds a little fishy take a close look at it. Here is a link to the app to avoid.
