I just installed CyanogenMod 10.2 on my phone, and was delighted with the "Privacy Guard" feature. This feature allows you to see (and block) what permissions apps have. In four days, Swype accessed my location data 14989 times. That is, 3750 times a day, or 2.5 times a minute. I can see from some other threads that Nuance are reticent to comment on why they need location data, but the extent of this havesting is quite scary! Can anyone from Nuance comment on this?
