We recently reported that an independent developer rolled out LibreOffice, the completely free productivity suite, on the Microsoft Store with a $2.99 price tag. As expected, the app was published in the Microsoft Store without the permission of the parent company – The Document Foundation.
The Document Foundation recently released a statement on Twitter to confirm that the company hasn’t published any app in the Microsoft Store.
Today, the Microsoft Store has pulled the unofficial LibreOffice app which had a rating of 4 stars and a price tag of $2.99. You can no longer download the app from the Microsoft Store.
“We have been made aware of an unofficial version of LibreOffice on the Microsoft Store. This is not official or created by us, and the money is not collected by us, so the app’s page is misleading,” the company said in a statement posted on Twitter.
