    Hmm, ever have an app appear from nowhere, that you know you didn't install?

    Mundu IM. Did it install itself when I installed some other apps recently?

    This is what i've installed lately and suddenly this mundu IM appeared...

    Congress
    Mint
    Toss It
    Paper Toss
    Wave Secure

    I know I didn't download it. 100% positive about it.
    Motorola Droid running Bugless Ultimanogen. It's a hybrid ROM. I stole it from Microsoft's Windows XD source code.
    Flash 10.1 coming to Droid by the end of the first half of 2010
    I'm too lazy to update my signature.

    Don't drink and download.....











    Hmmmm....Is it possible for a dev to create an app that can "piggyback" another??

    actually yes they can. I can't remember what app I downloaded, but it downloaded a Notes App by 3banana. It said it required it for it to work.

    So, it may have been piggybacked and it installed itself.

    I don't think it was Toss it or Wavesecure. I have both of those and don't have Mundu IM.....never even heard of it.......hmmmmmm?

    I even tried searching the market for mundu and it doesnt come up.

    Bugless Beast includes an IM app by default, the icon is a couple of speech bubbles. Is that the one you're talking about?

    yes. I found out it was an .apk file so not only did I download it,I mounted my phone and downloaded it.

    I see it's no longer on my phone which is also interesting since I don't remember taking it off. And the .apk file is deleted too.

    This is what happens when you drink or get past 55. Which is why I don't drink anymore, I'm forgetful enough.
