Submission + - Popular Android apps full 'o bugs - researchers blame recycling of code (itnews.com.au)

Many send user data to ad networks without consent, potentially without the publisher or even the app developer being aware of it. Quite a few also send private data across the network in plain text. The full study is due out later this week.
