    Oh I saw that. I'm just pointing out that the article that the OP posted was strongly exaggerated.

    Actually, the original article states two data sets. The first data set saw 13 of 15 apps stealing your address book from your iPhone. The second data set saw 3 of 50 apps doing the same thing, but the second data set was two years old.

    It doesn't change the fact that a company can take a copy of your entire address book off your iPhone without even prompting you or asking your permission. So I don't see much exaggeration there.

    I think I gotta make me some "free" iPhone apps...

    I'm actually not surprised. However BlackBerry apps from Jared Co.do the same thing. Just search for "Jared Co. spam" in a forum search here.

    Why are they still allowed in AppWorld? I've been a BB user for a year and a half. They've come up several times with a lot of complaining posts. I just recently warned someone. It doesn't make sense for their apps to still be in AppWorld with the known issues.
