    WTH does this game need to read all your personal contact information? We download a game to play a game on our device and not to send personal contact information in our contacts booklet to various application developers.

    Screen shot Images from Samsung Note are saved at something like 1200x800 so images will not upload.:rolleyes:

    Email the developer to complain. It is rather obnoxious that games ask for contact info, location (when they're not a location based game), etc.

    Glad I got the paid version, even though it was only $0.10 the other day. Disney is the developer so who knows what they want all that information for - $$$ maybe??

    Interesting enough, the app won't allow itself to be force closed. The Amazon version, at least. I force close it and it immediately restarts. I uninstalled it, because even if it isn't spyware, that isn't behavior I appreciate from a game.

    I got my version from Amazon but when it was $0.10 so it is the paid version. I just looked at my running applications and it was not listed but when I went into the app information for Where's My Water it did show Force Stop as an option so I selected it and it has remained greyed out for me (and I have gone in and out of the app data to "refresh" if needed). Weird.

    Indeed. Maybe the app just went rogue on my device? It happens.

    When I went to the Android Market I only saw one version available and it was the free one. At the time it asked for a bunch of personal information. For a game it should not require access to your personal information and contacts! I wonder how many game and software developers work with the government these days :rolleyes:
