Got a new toy for Christmas, found "Peel Smart Remote" on it.
Posted my review on the Play Store, but thought I'd warn others. This is my own opinion, as expressed in a review of this application on Google Play ...Don't say I didn't warn you...
WARNING: This application states it needs the following permissions, and I quote:
Your Personal information:
"Add or modify calendar events and SEND EMAILS TO GUESTS WITHOUT HOST'S KNOWLEDGE, read calendar events PLUS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION".
This is supposed to be an application that will let you use your device as a remote control for your TV, not as a SPAM AGENT!
I know that you have to pay for development work somehow, and that is usually by displaying adds. This however, goes way beyond normal revenue avenues.
I will be uninstalling this application and reporting it, as soon as I can.
Update: Since it's part of the system, I can't uninstall it. Have force stopped it, and disabled it.
