Android Apps Found To Be Data Sharing Without Permission [bbc.co.uk]
Some of the most popular apps written for Google's Android phones do not tell users what data they are gathering, says a study by US researchers.

Half of 30 applications studied share location information and unique identifiers with advertisers.

Information about the data gathering was collected using software developed by the team.

App creators should provide more information what will be done with harvested data, they say.
