Let me say, I'm really impressed by Privacy Inspector. Definitely a must-have with all the traitorware showing up on the market these days.
I'm about to launch a new blog (a little F&F thing, since I keep running into facebook length limits) about that sort of thing, and I am planning on talking about said traitorware, and was hoping you could answer a few questions about PI and PB for me.
Particularly, how do they work? Since PI identifies potential nastiness that has no associated permission, it's clear to me that it goes beyond a cursory examination of the perms list. Does it scan the app itself for certain API calls? And how do PB's fixes work? Is it just a matter of blocking permissions, like the functionality that's showed up in Cyanogen recently, or something beyond that, so that it can stop the things that aren't associated with permissions to?
I confess, the second question is dual-purposed. It's not only for my article, but I'm also curious because I'm considering upgrading to PB.
