    A new saurik app is out, PrivaCy. It comes as a solution to a problem which has recently made news about app store apps secretly taking information about your device and/or location and storing it.

    This led our very own iPhone Dev Team to post about it on their blog Link

    This app came about when one of the better known companies involved (Pinch Media) contacted Saurik to propose a global 'opt-out' for sending this type of data. They then contacted similar companies which collected data aswell and got their consent and technical expertise on how to disable their system on the iPod itself.

    The app disables the sending of personal information to the following companies, which should be commended for their cooperation on this issue. Flurry, Medialets, Mobclix and Pinch Media.

    You should include all the information about the application, including that saurik was contacted by PinchMedia to create this application, then asked BigBoss to help contact and implement it for the other major similar companies. All companies agreed to creating this application, and helped implement it.
