TickTock has been a hot topic in India for a long time, after which people started deleting Chinese apps from their phones. But in the meantime one of the people started downloading an app called Mitron. The app was promoted as Made in India and in a short time more than 5 million people downloaded it, but you would be surprised to know that the friends who used to download the app as Made in India are from Pakistan. Who has developed the app?
Punjab Kesari reports that Mitron App has been purchased from Pakistani software developer Qboxus. But it was claimed that the app was developed by Shivank Agarwal, a student at IIT, Roorkee. The real name of the Friends app is TicTic app, developed by Qboxus, a company owned by Irfan Sheikh of Pakistan.
Source code sold for 34
Irfan Sheikh sold the source code of this app for 34. Sheikh said his company sells source code, after which the buyer customizes it. Their main business is to clone a popular app and sell it at a cheaper price. So far, 277 copies of the TickTick app have been sold. "We are not bothered by what the developer did," he said. He pays and uses the script, it is not right to do so.
Made in china or pak is the app???
"People think it's an app made in India, but that's not true," Sheikh said. A TickTick buyer has rebranded the Friends app. You have downloaded and tested both apps with the technical team. The problem is not that the developer is Pakistani but the problem is that the app has been promoted under the name Made in India. No changes have been made to this Pakistani Tiktik app, only Tiktik has been named Friends.
Who bought in India?
According to the report, India is now moving towards self-reliance. In this, the youth of our country have become more aware to enhance the color of Indianness. The Friends app is getting a lot of downloads these days instead of Tiktok on the Google Play Store. People have shown awareness to boycott Chinese goods. Meanwhile the Friends app was removed from the Google Play Store on Tuesday.

Mitron App vs. Google's policy
However, Google Play and Friends app have not yet given a reason for this. It is possible that this was done for security reasons. If you have already downloaded the Friends app to your phone, you can use it. But now new people can't download it. And experts have advised that no one should use this application. Because there is no security, there is a risk of your data being stolen.
