Re: Why on earth would Google have a problem with BlackBerry Hub?

I agree to an extent but being forced to use an iPhone having changed employers I can see advantages.

One of the problems in Android is that an application will often stop working if you prevent it knowing your location, even if it's something as simple as a magnifying glass app. I haven't seen that kind of thing on iPhone, perhaps it's a lack of experience but I know it's a pain on my Android phones.

The real solution is for apps to be reviewed so they only ask for what they really need and for what is reasonable for them to have but Google doesn't seem to want to take the time and effort to do this, hence the mess we have now.
