Apple has removed these apps from their store but there were still over a million downloads!  If you installed any of these games, delete them immediately!

Before downloading an app:

1:  Double check who developed the app.

2:  Check the reviews.  No one is going to have a perfect score!

3:  Make sure that your device is up-to-date.
