Report: A fifth of Android apps expose private data
Hi all! I just happen to come across this article from CNET.com... needless to say I was NOT happy! But it has brought up an issue I have been wondering about for a while, regarding replacement keyboards. When selecting a replacement keyboard app (like Smart Keyboard Pro, which I am using) a notification pops up warning you that the app can collect data input on the keyboard.... is this something I should worry about????? :\
Someone tell me I'm just being paranoid.... ;)

Isn't this kind of our own doing? Many of us choose android phones because of the ability to customize them. We want to taylor them to our liking. We want them to fit our individual needs. By downloading some of these apps, isn't that simply an extension of this need? I know I enjoy the personalized information. Does it mean that I want it floating all over the internet, no. Sometimes though you have too take the good with the bad. Just my opinion though. I'm sure not everyone sees it this way.
