After Mitron, Google Play Store has now pulled off Remove China Apps. But the reason for doing this is still unknown.
The app was by Jaipur-based OneTouchAppLabs. The Remove China Apps gained popularity in the current anti-China sentiment prevalent in the country. Also, OneTouchAppLabs tweeted about being pulled off from the Play Store early in the day today.
Google has suspended our #RemoveChinaApps from google play store.
Thank you all for your support in past 2 weeks.

Google flagging and/or removing an app involves ‘repetitive content’. It basically means that an app is copying content from other apps without adding any original content of its own. The reason was Mitron app was removed.
So, if you have the app you can use it. But it is no more available for download.
The developers on the Play Store explain it as – “Remove China Apps is a tool to uninstall Chinese apps for android phones. It is very easy to find Chinese apps, This tool lists all Chinese apps. You can easily remove selected apps. Chinese apps are not secure you can scan and select Chinese apps that you want to uninstall, and click ‘Delete’ button to uninstall them”.
Also, the Remove China Apps had almost one million downloads on the Play Store and till Monday night, it was the top-free app on it.
