Logging Test by TrevE [SassiBoB Review]

I Can Haz Privacy? Today on XDATV, SassiBoB rocks an app called Logging Test by recognized developer TrevE. Have you ever wondered who is collecting your personal information on your mobile device? You may not know it, but “opting out” just isn’t enough. Is your privacy being respected? Find out now!

Quote from the developer:

“3 reasons I think this is important:

3- Who the hell is getting my data?”

Check out the thread in the forums.
