Online app store from Apple - AppStore often accused of overly strict censorship. Any application that arouses even the slightest suspicion among the censors is not allowed to be sold. But is it really that bad? Looks like no.
It seems that such censorship is even necessary. In support of these words, an incident speaks of what happened on Google Android Market. Relatively recently, the Jackeey Wallpaper utility appeared there, which was intended to search for background images for the desktop. At least that's what the developer stated officially. In fact, the utility collected all the data about the smartphone on which it was installed and transferred them to the Internet. Thus, the attackers (it is alleged that they come from China) got into the hands of information about passwords, address books, browser bookmarks and other similar information from the smartphones of millions of users. According to preliminary estimates (and the exact statistics in Android Market not maintained) the utility has been downloaded by at least one and a half million users. In fact, their number can be much larger, the numbers are very different - up to five million.
A fair question arises: could it be that some of the other applications currently in the catalog also have similar surprises? Follow the news.
Of course, the censors Apple are also not ideal and are quite capable of missing something like this on AppStore. The human factor has not yet been canceled. Still, the presence of such security is better than its complete absence.
