I really don't like babies, so your subject is poorly chosen on me Laugh | :laugh:

Seriously though, the idea sounds alright when done right.
And it's that last part I worry about.
We've seen it time and time again.
And here it is again, an app that's not supposed to track users leaked personal data before it even went into production.
So there's the hole, the incompetence of people.
xkcd explains it quite well[^] Smile | :)

I've laid out my (mostly) non-technical arguments about such apps in this Lounge post[^].
