What is bookcrossingapp?

Hi all! I was on my iPad and decided to try the app store to see if there was a bookcrossing app, and there was, but I don't think it's affiliated with the bookcrossing we know and love. This is it: http://www.bookcrossingapp.com/---/Main I tried searching the forum to see if there was conversation about it, but I only saw posts in German and I only speak English. Just wondering...perhaps a bookcrossing fan started this?

I believe it's the same one that was discussed here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/506369/
Don't use it, it's not official. (Though I have no idea what the status behind the scenes is; I'm fairly sure they must have told them to stop using the name and confusing the heck out of people.)

It's not a legitimate bookcrossing app so don't use it

And at that they told me they were aware of the situation and had been contacted already. Not sure what's going on.
