Hi good friends / developers.
I am trying to publish a new app on Amazon .
I keep running in to this rejection they say based on some community guidelines.
After 4 attempts I still have no clue where to look in the application code or resources to identify anything wrong.

Question.. has anyone seen this rejection and were able to resolve it ?
"Your app contains metadata title that could mislead customers, as the content resembles the content of another mobile application OR suggests another functionality."


thanks and best regards

it might be subtle? but, they're literally telling that your app's TITLE is misleading. could it be?

zero experience, myself, but a quick search @ amazon lead me here: https://developer.amazon.com/docs/policy-center/intellectual-property.html#deceptive-behavior. aka "misleading" = "deceptive"?

Thank you @Virtual Nomad ! the app name is "UFO Blaster", I find dozens of apps with very similar names but I did not see an exact match. I will def. search further - far and wide
LOL I really appreciate your thoughts and feedback, it may be a lot more simple that I thought. Will post updates here one identified and fixed. CrazySteve

i reviewed the 5 pages of "UFO" apps and can't understand why yours was disapproved (assuming it was for the Title), either.

I saw UFO Battles and thought yours may share too many letters. then saw battle UFO which shares (almost?) as many?

in the end, at least i discovered where blinkOk hangs out.
.

good luck!

It isn't necessarily the title of the app. It seems it is often one of two things. Something in the Amazon wrapper that they are pulling from the .apk, or something in the description page:
