Developer, I would like proof that you are allowed to redistribute these photos through your app. Per the National Geographic website usage guidelines, you are not allowed to do this.

Well this version doesn't do anything. Weird, use to work. Oh well at least it was cheap.

ganjaji. The developer's site is typical of the the other scam artist converter companies.

@LizBo,
While the developer's website might be registered in China, what evidence do you have that the developer is scamming anyone? Are all China registered websites questionable? If some are scams does that mean that all websites there are to be tarred with the same brush?
Dunno if developer is using NG copywrited photos sans permission(How did you determine that he hasn't got permission or that National Geo cares about that?), but he's asking just $2 for Star Wallpaper and certainly doesn't stand to make a lot of money at that price point.
I've installed his app and have gotten a fresh image each morning(some incredible photos, too) so Star Wallpaper does work as advertised.
Anyway, no doubt that National Geo's got a lot of expensive legal muscle at their disposal so if NG wants to they can make things difficult for the developer.

I would assume if they were nefarious they'd hide the fact they are Chinese...just to alleviate the possibility of being stereotyped as copyright infringers/haxors/etc.

Contact the National Geographic if you're worried but I wouldn't accuse them of anything without better proof.

Well, it looks like the photos are now marked with the NG logo and the name of the photographer as well as "©copyright material National Geographic Society. All rights reserved".
So everything seems to be on the up and up.

Beware: It appears the site is registered in China, and they are using National Geographic's ©copyrighted photos without permission.

If this were free fine. But you shouldn't charge money just to download and set as a wallpaper someone else's work.

Are you trying to make money with the National Geographic website or is this an official National Geographic app?

I was wondering about the same thing. Obviously, this is not an official app from NG.
