    I think we need a sub forum for computer apps and so on, as these are becoming more common... anybody agree?

    I checked out your app. I notice a major oversite. It seems to be almost entirely in Russian. Only the first page is in English. I think that will make it a hard sell...

    i just installed the app and i haven't gotten around to using it yet but i'd like to quote the disclaimer that popped up when i opened it:

    This application is ad-supported and our advertising partner, Airpush Inc., may place ads within applications and in your device's notification tray and home screen. Airpush collects certain information in accordance with the permissions you just granted through the prior screen.* When you click on advertisements delivered by Airpush, you will typically be directed to a third party's web page and we may pass certain of your information to the third parties operating or hosting these pages, including your email address, phone number and a list of the apps on your device.

    For more information on how Airpush collects, uses and shares your information, and to learn about your information choices, please visit the Airpush Privacy Policy. If you do not wish to receive ads delivered by Airpush in the future, you may visit the Airpush opt-out page or delete this app.
    this is pretty aggressive.

    *These were accessing call info like your phone number and something about opening network sockets.

    Permissions to use network is for publishing a link of the app to facebook and when you finish a test you can share your sociotype with your friends. and that's it. also you can check on google play the permissions we are using. it can collect phone numbers I guess if it needs to but nothing about e-mails. Sorry for the inconvenience I will surely put this message to the app description. Thank you

    It's not just ads inside the app, they can put them on your home screen and in your notification bar.

    Of course how much that bothers anyone is subjective, I personally think it's overboard, not enough to rail against it but enough to let people know before they download it.

    Based on my experience it is comparatively more aggressive than most other apps.

    Maybe it's super cool and worth it though, we'll see.

    We used only notification bar ads and nothing more. I disabled the homescreen ads and other options. And, of course, if you find any bugs or you have some suggestions im me or use the email developer option in google play. I'm always happy for any feedback. Thank you.

    Whazzup homedawg? Great pic btw. In any case if you speak Russian you could easily become an authority on this site by translating some of that Gulenko for us. I hate the guy but I'm a minority in that sense, a lot of people here would probably really appreciate it.

    Also, no fucking way. Who coded this app? Was it you? Did you just win by means of app coding? I approve.

    hi, by the way

    other than the ads the app is alright (ftr i've only had one ad come up in my notification bar since yesterday). i would classify it more as for beginners or for someone who just likes having some basics to reference right there on their phone for some reason. its got some basic info and its got type descriptions and tests grouped by author. its well organized and it hasn't been buggy at all.

    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    Nobody download that fucking app, the description reeks of too much spyware. This is not the direction we want our society to go.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Creepy Russian, take that shit out of your signature or, I promise, you will be ostracized. Not only because you are advertising on a private forum, but because people will fucking hate you once they download it. I work for a company that sells Android products and I get more complaints stemming from apps with such bloatware than ANYTHING.

    So yeah. Cut that shit out.

    Yeah and poorly designed aps that put ads on your phone and send your information to third parties are, like I said, the number one complaint about Android phones.

    You should take it down.

    Did you read the description of what the advertising component does? It gives your fucking phone number to advertising companies and random shit.

    People need to stop treating their privacy as an expendable commodity. It sickens me.

    Yeah and most of them are complete shit. Trust me, this is my JOB, these kinds of apps are the number one source of problems with Android phones. I repeat, this is how I make a living, and half my time at work is spent removing shitty apps like these or doing factory resets to get subtle adware out of people's phones.

    Well like, no, of course I did not. I am generally an incredibly 'public' person though so being accessible to advertising companies doesn't really bother me. You're right, I more than likely should have cared about this and read that stuff of which you speak, however in this instance I did not and everything on my phone seems ok so far.

    Give it a while.

    ...Or do the smart thing and uninstall it.

    Re: advertising companies, you are just giving people free advertising fodder and more information on how to manipulate you. It's not smart for you personally, and it's a trend in our society that leads down a path of decreased freedom for all, and a need for even more anxious wariness on an individual level.

    Look, I'm not forcing everybody to download this app if you don't want to install then don't you're free to do whatever you like and you know that, so why won't we just stop the arguing here and everything will be fine Thanks

    I'm not arguing. I'm telling you it's a shitty app that is most likely using too much RAM on people's phones by constantly pinging their information to different companies every time they boot their phones or load the app, and also most likely doing shitty things with people's information so that you or someone you know can make money by sitting on ass and not caring about other people.

    Fuck off.

    For the record: any application that does something with your phone outside of the program it claims to be, is both using up your data plan behind your back, as well as taking up your phone's RAM and making it slower by having background processes on top of the ones that actually run the program, which will be running constantly, draining your battery, and making your phone slower.

    It's a shitty app. Don't download it.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Well like, my phone has a shitload of RAM. My old phone got stolen and the insurance company bought me a new phone with lots of RAM.

    Well in that case you might be ok as long as it's the only app you have like that, just depends on what else the app is doing.

    What phone? GS3?
