Mitron is a free Short Video and Social Platform based out of Bengaluru, India. It is designed for people to showcase their innovative videos inline with our theme of light humor. Although Mitron app is ranked at number 4 in the ‘Top Free Apps’ category on the App Store. The app has a 4.5-star rating on the App Store and is categorised at number 2 social media networking app. Google has suspended Mitron app for allegedly violating its spam and minimum functionality policy. Even though Google reserves the right to take down any app that copies content from other apps without any changes, recent history has shown, the global search engine doesn’t usually take this step on its own. Mitron app is a classic example. Google has suspended Mitron App for violating its spam and minimum functionality policy.Launched on 11 April, the credit for developing the app was given to Shivank Agarwal, a student at IIT Roorkee.But over the time it has now emerged that Agarwal has not developed the app himself, as previously claimed in various media reports, but has purchased TicTic’s code for Rs 2,500. However
Pakistan-based software developing company, Qboxus, has claimed it sold the Mitron App’s complete source code to its maker for $34.
The removal of the app came soon after reports emerged that the Mitron app is a repackaged version of TicTic, which is a TikTok clone. The popularity of Mitron app in India rose to its fame after the ban of Chinese app TikTok. It is not unusual for suspended apps to reappear on Google Play Store.If the makers of the app believe that it meets the basic standards, they can appeal to Google against the suspension and claim to make it appear on the Play Store.
But immediately after Google pulled down Mitron app, the developer of Mitron apps has claimed that the basic standards of the App has been revised and got its place in Google Play Store.
