Apple Says No to App Developers

Apple Says, No Permission-No Recording So the big news the last few days has been apps that have been recording your screen actions without your permission. It’s a bit over my head, but it’s actually a third-party company, GlassBox, that is collecting the data with their software and providing the data to the other app developers.  App developers were given 24 hours to remove the recording coding, or their app would be deleted from the App Store. Some of the apps using this third-party company, GlassBox, are: Abercrombie & Fitch Hollister Expedia Hotels.com Singapore Airlines Air Canada Apple’s Policy Apple’s … Continue reading Apple Says No to App Developers

Group FaceTime Disabled

Wanted to post and update you about the “bug” found in Apple’s Group FaceTime (GFT) feature. As of yesterday, Apple disabled GFT, so that it can’t be abused intentionally or unintentionally. One-on-one FaceTime (FT) is still operating as designed with no issues. What Happened? Apparently, when you started a GFT conversation, the first two on the call were fine. When the third person, and any additional people, were being added to the GFT call, their phones would connect BEFORE the person accepted the call! Which meant audio and sometimes video started before the receiving person knew the call was connected. … Continue reading Group FaceTime Disabled
