LUCKY PATCHERS emails are the most popular email book on Android, with over two million downloads since its release last September.
But the app, which was downloaded over 100 million times on Google Play in just a month, is now being blocked from Google Play.
The update to the app is scheduled for release on October 12.
“Lucky Patchers was made by a small team of developers who put together a lot of the functionality for the app,” a Lucky Patcher spokesperson told TechCrunch.
Lucky Pagers emails were downloaded over the last month and have been downloaded by a whopping 2.2 million people, according to the company’s website.
But Google’s update means that anyone who downloads the app from the Play Store or the Google Play app store will be unable to access it.
The app has already been blocked in the US, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Canada and Ireland.
However, the spokesperson did not confirm whether the app was blocked in other countries.
Users have had a few chances to update the app to make it work again, and it’s been available in some markets like Australia, Germany and the UK, but this latest move has caused the app’s developer, Lucky Patchers’ own Sam Tisdale, to feel very upset.
“I am sad that this is the case, as it was never meant to be.
But it has been an uphill battle,” Tisdales post said.”
It has been a tough few weeks and I have had to keep up the fight by updating my app in order to stay updated,” he added.
Google has removed the app in its app store as it no longer meets its standards for user safety.
Lucky patchers is not the only app to be affected by Google’s latest update.
In March, Google removed the popular messaging app WhatsApp from the Google App Store.
But the company has yet to remove WhatsApp from Play in the UK.
