Major social media platforms might have blocked right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, but his app - Infowars Official - is surging on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

The app, which lets users stream Jones' content, was ranked third among the trending apps on the Google Play Store on Thursday, while it took the fourth spot in the top News apps on Apple App Store.

But wasn't Apple among the first to ban the Alex Jones' podcast.

According to a report by BuzzFeed News, the California-based tech company removed the entire library of Infowars podcasts from its iTunes and podcast apps saying the content 'violated its hate speech guidelines'.

The reports suggest it was Apple's decision to ban Alex Jones' podcast that prompted other major social media platforms such as Facebook to follow suit. After Apple took down his podcast, Facebook deleted four of Jones’s pages, while YouTube removed his channel which had over 2.4 million subscribers.

Now, not only is the app available on the Apple App Store, it is ranked amongst the top apps under the News section, coming in at number four as of August 10.

In a 2017 interview with The Telegraph, Tim Cook, CEO of the first trillion dollar company said that the epidemic of fake news "is a big problem in a lot of the world” and requires vigilance from both tech companies and the government to crackdown its growing influence.

Cook further called for the government to launch a public awareness campaign to fight the "scourge of fake news, which is killing people’s minds.”
