i can haz spyware?

from here (image source)

y'know, by any reasonable, functional definition, downloading personal information without the user's knowledge or consent qualifies an app as spyware. i doubted path was the only company who did this, and in fact it turns out that many have, so it seems to me that there is in fact malware in the iOS app store right this minute. there's no anti-virus though, because apple won't allow it.

all hail the security of the walled garden.
