"hoops"

It requires zero permissions. Make it an alarm app with cat pictures for "cat health training" because everyone loves fitness apps, and that will pass scrutiny.

The only difference is I'd assume Apple would be quicker to take down any app found to have been reported. I doubt their current system scans for audio files specifically requesting "Siri browse to scamsrus.go.tu".

[edit]

Though it appears Apple have one good idea, user input before taking action. Google does not need this because it's there to collect data, not sell you pretty phones.
