Forced updates and nosey permissions bother me
Tapfish and TapRanch are run by the same company, gameview studios.
They changed their permissions to allow them to read personal contact info and forced the upgrade. If you don't agree, you can't login.
As a result I'm locked out of TapRanch which I've been working on for a year, and am about to uninstall TapFish.
I'm really upset, even moreso because they don't answer questions about it. I've emailed them several times and they ignore me.
Just a heads up to anyone who does personal stuff from their phone, most of these apps are getting really snoopy AFTER they get you addicted to the game. In fact I recently got a new phone and could not find a single flashlight app that uses the camera flash, that didn't give permission to take audio/video of me anytime it wanted with full internet access to send it. Don't know WHY they'd want it but it creeps me out!
Does anyone else care about the snooping or do you just let them?
