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. |

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.
