I am sure I am in the minority of mobile users (though probably not a small minority these days, especially among the technically apt) in that I try to only use mobile applications where they provide a large amount of concrete value over the mobile website. The inability to sanely audit applications in conjunction with their ability to exfiltrate way more data than a mobile website raises the bar I set to a much higher level.
I understand the application developer's desire to move users away from their mobile "web experience" into their application. I also understand the business reasons behind the whip that is being put to the developer's back, but for me I'd say 99% of the time the app is just too much risk.
I know I've complained about this before, but it seems like it just keeps getting worse. In fact it seems like Apple is getting in on the fad.
So please, I implore you. Stop doing this shit.
