Thank you! Yeah, he’s leery of downloading an app to try to remove an app, but I think that’s probably the way to go.
Actually, @alison, I was also wondering about something else mobile-related. A few months ago I was talking to a programmer friend who had just released a new app for the company that he works for, and he was happy because he had only gotten two crash reports. When I asked him what he saw in crash reports, he said he could configure them to send all sorts of information, but for the ones he was looking at, he was mostly interested in operating system, CPU usage, available RAM, and what other apps they had open. This is fairly detailed information and it made me wonder 1) whether you’ve ever heard of anyone making deliberately glitchy software in order to harvest crash report data and 2) whether you know of places that reuse crash report data for marketing or other purposes.
