Submission + - "Buy no Evil" Android App (haaretz.com)

David Hume writes: Haaretz is reporting that "Israeli bloggers have recently released a new Android application geared toward informing users whether or not their potential purchases were manufactured in one of the Israeli settlements in the West Bank." The Buy No Evil Android app is free. (Bar code download) As reported in the LiveLeak article, "New app makes boycotting West Bank settlements a touch easier," the bloggers behind the new application are Noam Rotem, Itamar Shaltiel, and Boris Boltianski, who run the "Activism is Open-Source" (English) blog. The message announcing the app states, "Buying a product means supporting the producer, and while we do not advocate a consumer ban, we do believe that people should be aware of which manufacturers they support."
