It was a rough day yesterday for fans of the video indexing app Mizuu. The app was pulled from Google Play after it was found to be in violation of Google’s adult content guidelines. The developer has received word that the app won’t be reinstated, so he’s decided to open source it and host a free version so paying customers will still have access.
The issue stems from Mizuu’s use of themoviedb.org to find data on users’ video files.
