Are you concerned about privacy while using your iPhone or iPad? Just in case you missed it, there was a change in Apple’s User Agreement a while back (iTunes 9.2) concerning how Apple collects data from your iOS device in order to serve up ads that are better targeted toward you.
Though you can’t stop the iAds appearing on your iOS device, you can stop the collection of your data.
Simply visit the following address on your device to opt out:
Opt out of interest-based ads in the App Store and Apple News
I suspect most users are comfortable with targeted advertising and don’t mind certain data being collected by Apple in order to serve up ads that you’d more likely be interested in seeing. It’s doubtful though that this level of confidence and trust is extended to third party apps and their collection of user’s private data.
You can rest assured that security will be beefed up in the soon to be released iOS 6, where apps will be required to ask for the user’s permission before accessing Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, and Photos.
While we wait for the release of iOS 6 later this year have a look at the app Clueful for $5.
Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own site soon but
I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with
a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out
there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas?
Thank you for your compliments. My advice is to write as much as you can, don’t hesitate, just write. You can go back and clean it up later adding and removing bits as you see fit. As with anything, the more practise you get in, the better you’ll become.
I would recommend having a look at WordPress.com as it is free, but it does have it’s limitations. So it would be a good idea to look at other options too. You could even have Vintuitive build it for you! If you give a detailed description of your requirements via the Contact page I can have a prepare a free quote just for you. Alternatively, feel free to give us a call and we can have a chat about your needs and what Vintuitive can do for you.
Thanks for your enquiry.
