    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Thanks saurik you are the best, I'll turn off everything, I'm tired of "do you want to allow location" almost every 5 seconds on some applications.

    What applications exactly are involve here? I tried searching the appstore for the companies named above and I found nothing -_0

    Yes let's block non-private statistics applications gather to help devs improve them.

    Now I'll go back to wearing my tin-fool hat.

    its pretty obvious that PrivaCY is on the front page of cydia.
    Not to everyone. Post kinda made it seem like.. huh? Is this an AppStore thing? Cydia? Etc... not everyone knows Cydia like the back of their hands.

    It is nice to see that the companies came together to help with the "opt out" package. Even better that they are recognizing the JB community and what it can do.

    dam i hope they get sued, we bought these dam iPhones with our hard earned money why the hell can't we do whatever we want to do like unlocking & jailbreaking for customizations and stuff to personalize your phone but idk if this has to do with anything but i downloaded some app and when i started it it just went to a black screen and it said "I don't like hack." & i was like wtffffff. These companies r takin it too far though...

    Are you people new to the Internet? Web browsers have been doing this for YEARS. Web sites can track what browser you use, operating system, etc. Services like steam can even see what hardware you're computer has. It's all used to propagate and deliver ads for the correct demographics. Also, when they say they track your "location", it's only the region/city. No one can actually pinpoint your location from the data gathered.

    Devs can get data like how long a game session is, where people get stuck, even what features of the app aren't being used. I think this is invaluable for developers to properly update their applications.

    For example, the developer of Flick Fishing can tell you exactly how many people have opened the manual of the app (around 10%) so for a future update. He can make any gameplay changes a pop-up to make sure everyone sees it since noone reads the manual

    Default PrivaCY Settings
    In the settings area, does the on mean you are blocking them or does it mean it is on and not blocking??
