|There has been quite an uproar lately about iOS apps that scan your address book and upload all your contacts to some server.|
While Apple has responded and presumably will restrict access to the contacts in a future version of iOS, it is still a bit unsettling how some developers disregard your privacy.
It goes without saying that F-Sim Space Shuttle does not even access any of your private data. It never has, and never will. It is a paid app, and in return for your $3.99 you get a pretty cool flight simulator. That’s it. There’s no need for me to “explore alternative business models” (which usually means offering free apps that steal your private data and sell it to advertisers).
For full disclosure:
- The F-Sim Space Shuttle app periodically checks http://www.f-sim.com for news to display. These requests do not contain any personal data and are not stored or even logged.
If you have any questions, please contact me (reply to this post or send me an e-mail).
