Readers are once again reminded to be highly suspicious of Android apps available both in and outside of Google Play. People should also pay close attention to permissions requested by any app.
Yes, I agree. That's why I don't do any critical things using the smart phone.

But if they offer Apps in the store (and this is valid for all companies) they should take more responsibility for what it is published there.
I know it is not that easy and that there are users that only receive what they deserve, because they are just morons that try to be too smart.
But there biggest % of users are just John / Jane Does that only try to get through the day the best they can. They are not versed in technology but rely on it (and as the world is becoming, they have not many alternatives). So if you can't trust the official sites, then what?
Sigh | :sigh: Sigh | :sigh:

I know it is a bit naive from me, but I wish big companies would start accepting a bit more responsibility and give users a bit more credit / respect users a bit more, at the end we are the ones that make them earn money (and this is valid in both forms, as customers and as product)
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
