    reporting malicious application

    Be warned, the application known as Google Goggles has been deemed highly malicious by countless downloaders. The application hardly functions as it should, and as is evident by my own expeirence and tons of the comments, this application cannot be uninstalled. If anyone knows a way to remove an app that is acting this way please respond to this, and to all users, don't think that just because an app is made by google that its safe, it still amazes me that they put their name on this trash.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Perhaps it's malicious in its extreme incompetence.

    A foil hat should cover the maliciousness problem, though from the sound of your post, you are already wearing one. This is possibly why no one has responded to your post in the google support forum.

    I am basing this off of multiple comments, as far as I kno w because I'm not too tech savvy is that the stupid thing will not uninstall, any app that inconviences the user in such a way would be considered malicious would it not? Some comments suggest it is taking information it shouldn't need for the app, but I dunno about that.

    I would hazard a guess that the OP is not rooted.

    Anyone who automatically assumes something is safe because of a brand name is a fool, what I said shouldn't have been new news. Also, why would you even respond to this if you don't even address the question?
