Quick question concerning bb apps. Do they all want "personal information" from the phone in order for them to work? I dont feel comfortable giving my contact information, audio/video files, email addresses etc just so I can play a game or use a code scanner. Are there any that dont want or need this info to work?
Hello celusk, welcome to BBOS!
To answer your question, yes there are, and it's not as bad as you think. Many apps require certain permissions as a way to classify them with RIM guidelines. Unless it asks for your credit card info or passwords I would not worry about it too much. Apps that deal with contacts and BBM integration need certain privileges in order to run properly.
Lets BB 10 changes it. Developers are gearing up for their support. We will definitely see major changes and improvements. Application support will significantly improve.
