    MogoRoad (a police radar warning app) developed by Swiss software firm Mogo has a unique line of code that grabs the users phone number so they can call you and try to talk you into buying the paid version or other apps.

    I get enough telemarketing phone calls, now I have to worry about some a-hole calling me at 3am pitching his stupid new iPhone app

    Wow, makes me wonder what else developers can do without public knowledge.

    That's terrible.

    I hope Apple does something about that.
    I sure as hell don't want devs calling me to spend money.
