To answer your question - he has mentioned it gets taken down by Google due to Samsung pressing hard on them to remove it. They don't people being able to disable these features on their phones. I also choose to not crucify him right out of the gate and give him the benefit of the doubt he is being straight with people. He develops a great product and I've had to buy it twice in the 3+ years I've been using Samsung phones. If you're really upset over spending an extra $4, or a cup a coffee in your terms then I cannot help you. I have no love fest for the dev, no idea who he even is - I just appreciate the benefits his app brings to my Samsung experience.
