WeekApp belongs to a group of adware applications that are known as InstalleRex-WebPick family. Programs from this group are known to randomize their name upon the installation.

The official website at weekapp.net claims that WeekApp is supposed to help you find the best Android and PC apps on the web, but the chances are that this program may cause a lot of problems than do any good.

Now you might say that you do not remember visiting weekapp.net and installing WeekApp onto your computer. It is most probably true, but users seldom download adware from their official homepages in the first place. The main adware distribution method is bundled downloads. WeekApp can also be bundled, and it usually comes with fake Flash player or Java plug-in installers. Such installers are abundant on the Internet – users often encounter annoying pop-ups that encourage downloading and installing new upgrades for plug-ins and media players.
Needless to say, that if you need to update your flash player or media player, you have to download the updated at the official homepage. Trusting third-party websites is a bad idea – you will simply download more adware onto your PC, thus making your system vulnerable to a third-party exploitation.
It is highly possible that you have installed WeekApp onto your PC yourself, but do not panic – even if you have more than just one adware application on the system, it is not hard to get rid of them.
