iOS apps may be more likely to collect and transmit unencrypted personal data than Android

Both platforms need to work on this. Never mind encryption, there's no need to be sending contacts information period.

Exactly Ted... It should be 0.00% across the board for both platforms.

but the point is that iOS is really more dangerous platform.....see another problems:
with Android you have to allow it before any installation with iOS you can do nothing

If Apple had anything going for them you wouldn't be complaining about slow news.

Apple has a ton going for them, their the most valuable company in the world. However this isn't about that, it's about a glaring weakness in both platforms that needs to be fixed.

The most valuable company in the world = Exxon
While I do agree with you about how both have weaknesses, Apple in theory should have them sorted out because they are in total control of their iPhones. Not the carrier, not the user, but Apple. They should've already cleaned up the mess that iOS 6 has caused yet it seems like every week and with every update there is a kink that needs to be worked out.

Both platforms should have them all sorted out. I know you wanna make it a flame war but I'm thru going there. Take all the jabs at apple you want, but lets hope it doesn't affect your phone at some point.

I'm not trying to insinuate anything. Sure I do act immature sometimes just like anyone else here, only when mxy or some other douche comments and tries to bash without seeing the reality. I have an HTC Evo 3D. I HOPE my personal data never leaks out in any way but I do know it is a POSSIBILITY. I don't like Apple products but I don't want them to disappear because having no choice on what mobile OSes are available would be boring.

You make a great point. I thought the walled garden was tight like Ft Knox...
Seems like thats a myth...along with many other iPhone, IOS, Apple myths.

I wonder why PhoneArena hasn't banned you're other account you're known as: Sithvnger

Who cares dude. I mean really what was even the point in saying that? Everyone on this site knows that, and has known it forever and a day.

Let the flame war begin. Sorry but you gotta know its coming.

This definitly proves that an open system can be just as secure, if not more secure than closed systems. But this isn't good news for either company. No flame war with this one.
