I'm a little leary to download too many apps from the marketplace because so many of them have what seems like unlimited access to the personal information on my phone. For example the NFL Mobile app. Here's a list of the access this app has to your phone. The scary part is, some apps have more access to your system than this one does!
Your location: coarse (network based) location, fine (GPS) location.
Your messages: read SMS or MMS, receive MMS, receive SMS, receive WAP.
Network communication: full internet access
Storage: modify or delete SD card contents
Phone calls: read phone state
Services that cost you money: send SMS messages
System tools: change network connectivity, change Wi-Fi state, modify global system settings, prevent phone from sleeping.
I'd really like to download this app being that the majority of its features are free, but it pretty much has unlimited access to my phone and that's what bothers me. I mean, why would this app (or any app for that matter) have/need the ability to "modify or delete SD card contents", or the ability to "change my network connectivity", read my phone calls, SMS/MMS messages"? Is anyone else concerned about this issue or am I just being paranoid? What about you....do you take into consideration the access certain apps have before you download them, or do you not think it's that important?
Speaking of the NFL Mobile app.....has anyone downloaded this one yet and what's your opinion on said app? Do you like it, does it work well, etc.?
