Why is everyone bashing android? It's like being a overprotective parent....you can keep your kid away from certain things but something bad will happen eventually no matter how careful you are.
ALSO, the last time I checked a developer snuck a tethering feature into an app on the app store.....what makes you think that the same isn't going to happen on ios with something malicious or info stealing???

Big brother lives in shenzen, china. That's where my i4 was shipped from. Hate it for the droids. Text messages and voice mail password = bend over!

I'm not good with code at all, but I know I would pay for little snitch to be ported to the iPhone!

Your comprehension level must be a little on the sensitive side... I have not seen any bashing going on. Especially to use the words like "everyone"... But in the event there is some "bashing" here is a little attempt to answer your Q...
Because genius, this site is basically APPLE everything...most people on here are here because they own some sort of Apple produced device... Not like engadget or other tech reporting/news sites that report news on all devices. For the droid lovers may I suggest (Droid Forum - Covering all Verizon Droid Phones: Motorola Droid, Droid X, Droid 2, Droid Incredible and Droid Eris)
Aside from the obvious of this site being umm APPLE news. The Droid is a ok device but...Just ok at best... and Apple did take a beating from them over the past month soooo.... its Apple fan boys turn to poke fun...

yeah, little snitch on iPhone would be awesome!
Unfortunately, I'd e-mailed it's developers a long time ago(before 3GS) about a possible port, and they said it wouldn't represent any technical challenge, but so far there was no sign that it would happen, so I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

I didn't say everyone on the forum but there are tons of iphone users that do bash android. In this thread specifically there was iLoveWindows&iPhone and stlcaddie that made a comment about Android.
And please attempt to not be a smart....well you know(in response to kuhndsn).

Lol nice.If this was helpful, or even if it gave you a laugh, click the Thanks button!

A smaller percentage of Apple apps are collecting user data, but a smaller percentage of Apple's MASSIVE app catalog still equals a LOT more apps.
The fact is that there will always be people that will attempt to exploit any app store, as long as there's money involved. Just make sure that the stuff you keep in your phone is not important. Never, EVER use on of those e-wallet apps that stores your credit card numbers or passwords.
There's also a firewall app you can get in Cydia that will block apps from uploading information back to their servers.

Android SUCKS! Get an iPhone!
Android users need to just get an iPhone like the rest of the world and quit wasting time with a cheap knock off! Come on Android users! It's in the name! "Jack"eey wallpapers? The iPhone is a lot better then any Android phone out there because Apple rejects apps like this for the safety of their users. I seriously doubt that something like this would ever happen to thousands of iPhone users. That security breach on the iPad 3G doesn't count because it was AT&T's fault due to a network error which Apple had nothing to do with. Android needs to hurry up and die out already. Think Different.

There is so much that Apple can learn from other platform, for one widgets for toggling data, wifi and other features would be amazing but Apple nup we want to to take the long way round.
No matter what I say or any other person you will always get the tits that think the sun shines put of Apples *** and there devices are all singing all dancing master pieces.
I have been playing with the HTC Desire and all I can say is I'm buying one, now I have been part of this Apple madness for over 3 years since the first ipot but no more I have seen the light and am bloody running at it.

Um...iPhone has been comprised in a similiar manner. Though I have not heard of case where the intent was malicious, just possible or poor programming.
The two cases that I know about revolve around Aurora Feint and PhoneSpy. Of course there was the tethering app which did things it was not "suppose" to, but different because it didn't steal information.

Why do you think JB is legal now? Apple is being too over protective.
