Re: Android Jellybean 4.2 specs
said by Snakeoil: Well of course not... the last thing Apple wants is for their users to know what nefarious things they and their software are up too.
I read a few permissions some of the apps were asking for, and it's kinda "WTH. is going on"
I either didn't pay that much attention to what apps were accessing on the Ipad, or there wasn't a "warning" about what they'd be accessing, like there is with Android.
But you can be sure that apps common to both platforms are doing the same things, just Apple doesn't tell you so you can't decide if you want that or not.
There have been a good number of Android Apps I have chosen not to install or update because of added new permissions for things I don't care about.
For instance an ads support game really needs no permissions beyond net access for the ads, but some have astounding permissions, clearly for data mining.
And to be fair M$ is just as bad about not telling you what software is up too, or potentially enabled to.
