    For forum apps (like the app for android.net) it gives a warning that the app identifies the specific phone. Is this to enable the app to log in the user, or is it something that warrants fixing?

    It could be for a lot of reasons, but the 2 most common are "ads" and "authentication" (I just show you that the app uses it, I have no clue what they are doing with the information). in the later version im going to have a "ignore" button for trusted apps.

    Awesome, thanks!

    Also, a dumb question, reading phone status doesn't equal switching out of the program to answer a call, does it?

    I've always wondered about that.

    It means that the app detects call state... like a music player would "pause" if it detected "on phone call", and resume when "call ended". but what they do with the data can very.

    Thank you.

    When trying to scan some apps, it says the app failed to scan. Exiting and reloading doesn't fix this. Any reason to this?

    Usually because of "OutOfMemory" errors, but a logcat would tell me for sure.

    I'm trying out the inspector. One of my apps is "Dow Jones" When I try choosing it, it says "Warning! Cannot scan private apps". What exactly is a "private app"? And is there any other way to scan it?

    I have a rooted Droid 1. No custom ROM or kernel.

    Thanks!

    When uploading apps to the market you have the option to make it private, which puts the app into a "private" folder when installed. Nonroot phones cannot access that directory, but rooted phones can. Because PB/PI are non-root apps, even with root on your phone, you cannot scan those apps in that folder.

    Hi Matt,

    I'm trying out your Privacy Inspector. Thanks for bringing this to us users. I found it works well on my Evo 4G (Froyo 2.2.1), but seems to crash alot on my Captivate (Froyo 2.2). I haven't tried it yet on my Droid (Gingerbread 2.3.2), so no word there yet.
