    iOS Apps Leak More of Your Data Than Do Android Apps, According to Survey

    AppleInsider reports today on a new report from Appthority that looked into the top-performing free Android and iOS apps, and which found that it was iOS apps rather than Android apps that got up to some slightly more ďriskyĒ activities! In particular, Appthority found that all 50 of the top free iOS apps, as well as 92% of the top 50 free Android apps, sent and received unencrypted data, with 60% of the top iOS apps tracking user locations, 54% being able to access a userís Contacts, 60% sharing data with ad or analytics networks, and 14% accessing a userís calendar. As you can see from Appthorityís graph, the Android figures for the corresponding values are slightly less than Apple's iOS, although not by much, it has to be said, for most of them. However, only 20% of the Android apps had access to userís contact list, which is considerably smaller than iOSís 54%.
