Read review carefully

Rating stars catch your first attention when you browse for apps in need. This is the first impression for you to choose a Mobile Application Development Company. On the other hand, you have to read the review carefully left by other users. Why? Because some apps may run smoothly and work out well for your need but the permission does not seem reasonable. When a simple photo editing application requires too much permission such as accessing to your address book, contact information, profile or your location, you had better watch out. Obviously this application aims at stealing your information and account to sell to advertisement suppliers.
