    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.

      GPS location, phone calls, cameras and network connection.

      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.

      Animal says:

      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.

    I am an unreconstructed PC man.

    Personal Computers – not phones when I can use a big screen.

    Definitely not Politically Correct.

    Has the spware post been exterminated by the all seeing one?

      Animal says:

      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.

    Guido is my Guide app says:

    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.

    Bloody promo vid doesn’t work on an iPad. Sloppy, very sloppy.

    Guido’s app would be illegal even in North Korea and China, so much spyware.

    WTF?

    Broadsword calling Danny Boy says:

    Thousands of people are heroin addicts but I don’t see that as a good reason for me to try it.

    What are its other major benefits?

      We have two advantages – A bright red uniform, a warrant from the Pope and the element of surprise.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
