DS Effects-Worst Dev Ever?

I am tired of DS Effects putting needless apps up. They are the ones with about 20 virtual pets and then really dumb fighting games with just left/right and an attack button. How do you feel about them?

Agree

I completely agree with you. They are truuhuuuuhly useless, and I have no idea why they are still there. I don't know about anybody who like virtual pets. And I certainly won't pay .99 cents for it. it just takes up space when you are looking for other games.

Suck it DS Effects!!!

Well earlier (in the past few days), there was a topic saying that Pangaea is the worst. HECK NO!!! DS Effects just flat out sucks. They have been around since the age of the ipod touch web apps, so basically all of these "pointless" apps you're seeing is their lame attempt to make some dough by porting their web apps to the app store and putting price tags on them. Idiots...

Yeah, I read that. Pangea has quality games and I don't get how that person could say that they were the worst(that includes that they were worse than DS Effects and gasp, AAAplications, papi ripper-offer!) I hate DS Effects! Get them off!

Ban 'em

Agreed! Ban them from the AppStore! Wait, can they do that?

did they ban tris or did they just threaten to sue? I know they took papilander off voluntarily, but some other AAAplications apps are gone too. Good question

Tris was legally threatened not banned. But DS Effects doesn't deserve to be on the AppStore!

Has anyone ever tried DS Effects' games online? There're much worse than you probably think.

What's their website? I want to see for myself because I refuse to spend money on their apps.
