Another iPhone Developer Gets Busted Stealing Phone Numbers

Another iPhone Developer Gets Busted Stealing Phone Numbers

iPhone game developer Storm8, creator of games such as World War, iMobsters and Vampires Live, has just been hit with a suit for secretly gathering the phone numbers of everyone who purchases its games.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen this; Swiss developerMogo got busted gathering numbers and then calling people to harass them to buy more apps, which is certainly a more brazen move. Storm8 claims that this was a bug, but they’re getting sued anyways. It doesn’t pay to be shady, devs! [Boing Boing via Kotaku]
