IT News: Google disables snoopy iOS app, apologises

After Facebook’s dubious ‘Research App’ was declared, Google disabled its private iOS app that intruded on a user’s iPhone usage.

The app, Screenwise Meter, allowed users gift cards in change for tracking their internet usage data.


As per Engadget reports, the iOS version of the app worked under Apple’s developer enterprise program, which authorizes distribution of apps with exclusive privileges to be used only by a company’s employees.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.
