Google has removed the Android VTS (Vulnerability Test Suite) from the Play Store, an application that was created for the sole purpose of letting users know if their Android device has all the security patches in place to protect from the most known Android security vulnerabilities reported in the press.

The app, which we wrote about around the start of November, was open-sourced on GitHub, but its creator, NowSecure, added it to the official Play Store as well, so more users could install it without thinking it was malicious.

The app, even if quite useful, never reached download numbers as something like Angry Birds for example, but things didn't go smooth with Google's staff, and the honeymoon ended a few days ago, when the app was unceremoniously removed from the Play Store.
