    Recently we shared some of the drama surrounding CarrierIQ, the little bit of pseudo-malware tracking software that has been found on several HTC and Samsung devices. If you are one of the folks that has a device that might have CarrierIQ on it, and are concerned about it, fear not... a developer named, Supercurio, has developed a downloadable app that can help you detect the offending software on your phone. In fact, it's super-easy to use and get. You can find it on the Android Market at the source link below. Enjoy your detective work!

    So it lets you know if the software is on your phone. Then what...?

    This is my rezound with verizon. This is what popped up in the app I downloaded. Linux kernel dmesg log confidence level: 100 . Look under that heading in the picture there are 3 logs with CIQ in it. Looks like I got CIQ on my verizon phone.?

    According to the developer, the app is hours old and doesn't even have a real icon. I'm sure it'll add more features as they work on it.

    It said "Nothing found" on my Bionic, but I don't know how to interpret the numbers.

    It's not a finished app. As per the app description:

    It's unfinished (only a few hours old) Look for updates soon.
