Oops: Google admits failing to wipe all Android apps with location-tracking X-Mode SDKs from its Play Store

Google on Friday removed 25 Android apps from the Google Play Store after missing them during a prior purge. The apps contained the X-Mode SDK that the Chocolate Factory previously banned for selling location data. “Due to an oversight during our enforcement process, 25 apps containing the X-Mode SDK were not removed from Google Play after the developers were given a 7-day warning,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement emailed to The Register.
