“Can I trust app X?”

Can you trust the company/organisation/people who make it? (What have they done in the past/are doing now?)

Can you trust their business model? (How/when do they make money?)

Is it open source?

Is it decentralised?

If yes to all, yes. Otherwise no.

@kravietz @aral Does the output of "python exodus_analyze.py $APK_file" expose any spyware? Is the app even available outside of the of ?


@aral @kravietz Is the app's bug tracker exclusively on MS or ? If so, bug reports are suppressed by hostility toward users trying to file bug reports. Apps that hinder bug reporting are not trustworthy.
