Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!


 
A warning is in, by Webkinz Newz and therefore from Ganz itself, about a fake Webkinz app. Beware of this app which has just appeared on Google Play. This Webkinz World Mobile App, by AppymanDev, is an imposter. Do not download it, click on it or most important, don't pay for it. It is not a real Webkinz app and does not even work. It is just a fake.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for letting us know, Webberlily. I hope no one gets duped by this.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for advising us about this, Webberlily! People might have bought it if nobody informed us not to. Lets hope nobody buys it.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thank you Webberlily! I was accually about to get that app, but then I decided to come on here for reviews of it. And then, thankfully, your post came! Thanks for saving my money and my Webkinz account! Many thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Glad to help

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for letting us know, I didn't use it, never knew it existed...

But if I would have found it I would never pay....

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

wow, thanks for the heads up!!! Ganz should make a real app for ipod/iphones though

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Wow,
Thanks Webkinz insider for informing us..
This is so important as some of us own Google Tablets and are real looking forward for the opportunity to play on the Tablet!
Most probably have loaded it if I didn't see your warning
Many thanks!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Wow, thanks for the heads up. That would be very tempting. I'll bet more than a few get caught with this one. Thanks again for the warning!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for the info - we all need to be careful. Check info here before doing something that would be hurtful.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks so much for the info.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for telling us... hope no one falls for this

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thank goodness you told us! Webberlily, you are the best!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for the info!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for the heads up on this Webberlily! A lot of us would love to have an app on our smart phones or tablets on which we could play Webkinz, not just those fortunate enough to have iphones or ipads. If I had seen this, I probably would have jumped on it as it looks so official from your pictures. It amazes me how someone can get away with something like this.

Thanks for preventing WI members from being duped!!!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thank you for letting us know!! I used to use Google Play and would have possibly fallen for it if were not for WI

Yes, thanks for your help, adrib, for alerting me to this problem

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

What a lousy thing for someone to do. I hope Ganz is forcing these people to take down the app *and* nailing them for trademark violations.

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for the info!

Re: Warning: Beware of Fake Webkinz App!

Thanks for posting a warning. I have a Android phone. Even though my phone doesn't have adobe flash on it, I found a app that lets me play flash games, like Webkinz World, and Bearville, ect. The app is called Puffin Web Browser. They have a free version that lets you try out flash in the app for 2 weeks. (I think that the 2 week trial is a good amount of time to find out if you like it). The full version is $2.99. I don't buy many android apps, but I feel that one is well worth getting. Also, the app saves to a sd card. Since, my phone doesn't have much space, its nice to have apps that save to the sd card. They also have the app on iphone/ipad. But, if I need to use a flash app on my iPad, I use a app called Photon Flash Player for iPad. Right now the app is on sale for $4.99. It is almost like puffin, but it looks different.
