Spotting Android Scum!

"Android offers developers a lot of freedom in using a phone's hardware in their apps. While this leads to some really amazing functionality, it can also be a security concern. Google has chosen to run a more open marketplace for apps, and does not hold content up so they can review it first. There is no gatekeeper for the Android Market. All a developer needs to do is pay the $25 developer fee and upload their app to the Android Market. Naturally, this has invited some riffraff to join the party. By looking at an app with a skeptical eye, and checking the permissions, you can avoid apps that are shady, or just plain scams."

Here's a fun thought for a Sunday - There is a lot of crap out there trying to get on your Android Phone! This Tested post has a lot of good information though that should help you next time you decide to explore the market! And the picture is priceless!
