Moola! Renamed EasyCheckBook: Your App Did Not Randomly Disappear


You use the same app day-in and day-out until one day, suddenly, the app is no longer there. No software updates were performed, the phone hadn’t even been turned off since the apps last use, but somehow the app is gone. Disappeared. Houdini’d. Did Verizon or Google remotely wipe the app for security purposes? What is going on?

This is exactly what happened to many users of an application called Moola! by Christopher Perry. The sudden disappearance is even more cause for concern knowing that it’s purpose is to manage all your finances in one place. If you think Moola! has disappeared or been deleted from your phone as well, look instead for EasyCheckbook by Christopher Perry: the developer simply renamed the app. Combine automatic updating of apps and you’ve found the source of mystery.

I’m sure this is happening to users of much more than Moola! so next time your favorite app has gone all David Blaine Chris Angel on you… make sure it hasn’t simply been renamed.

  1. I turned off automatic updating because of this.  I thought I was screwed.  So next time I will read all my updates before downloading.  

  2. Wow! You’d think that the app developers would be nice enough to give you a heads up. Seeing as they have your email address. (don’t try to tell me they don’t, I get plenty of emails directly from app dev teams. That have pertinent info to specific apps) Why Not send us a preliminary email that details the changes in the app name. Good way to lose customers, IMHO.
