from here

whether or not things like android.counterclank qualify as malware or not (do the intricacies of malicious intent really matter when the unanimous consensus among users is that it's unwanted?) is of secondary importance to me. what really boggles my mind is that mobile app developers are actually falling for this con when desktop adware is still so fresh in people's minds (well, my mind, at any rate).
