    Guido's evil App says:

    It’s spyware.

    Has access to GPS location, phone calls, cameras and network connection.

      Maybe next year, Ed Miliband can afford this with his £10 million if he hasn’t hid it abroad yet.

      Not necessarily spyware. GPS location: geo tagging – phone calls: make calls from within the app – cameras: take pictures with the app – network connection: send pictures via the ‘net. That said, I have to ask, why hasn’t Guido published a privacy policy and terms and conditions ? Either he hasn;t got one or he has something to hide.

      Which is it ?

      No it isn’t – location is so we can geo-target push notifications. If you don’t want switch off. Phone is so you can call us, camera don’t know why it says that given app doesn’t use that function, network connection is so you can get news ‘n all. No network connection would be pretty stoopid and the app would be deadware.

      Doh!

      As above, Android version looks fine and doesn’t have rights to do any of your claims. You’re welcome to prove me wrong though.

      More like you are publishing multiple posts making the same allegation under different names. I checked it for myself and it looks fine in the Android version. If you can prove it’s got malware or spyware then ‘fess up the details.

      Seems to be a post saying so below, but then again I had a good look over the app with my own tools and it looked spyware free to me. Judge for yourself really.

    Tell you what this is a great app. If I ever get lost, forget a phone number, lose a photo or forget my wifi password all I have to do is contact Guido.

Zac Goldsmith: “The hon. Gentleman might like to know that today’s Guido Fawkes quote of the day is the one on drug laws that we have heard cited by a number of hon. Members.”

Mike Hancock: “I am delighted to hear that Guido Fawkes is talking about something other than me.”



“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
