Remember this one?
It’s great when it’s a Queen song but so great when it’s a free app you love like Trapster…
How do you avoid this? First, be careful about what software you actually download and believe it or not, I believe you actually want to pay for software you rely on. You may think you’re getting away with something by using a lot of free apps but as they say about Facebook, if you’re not not sure where the revenue is coming from, it’s coming from selling your personal data. Do yourself a favor and look for apps that are freemium and actually pay developers for what you use. Not only is it the right thing to do, it will keep your favorite apps from disappearing…
Oh, and if you’re looking for a Trapster replacement, try Waze — seems to have a lot more momentum and it will actually save you time, not just report speed traps!
