 From my limited understanding of this, Apple and Google are creating an 
API which will be part of the OS. And then it's up to developers to 
create apps and convince users to download them (Apple gets their 30% 
off the top, no?). So at best we have reporting from the set of users 
who have decided to opt in, download an app, and accept the app's 

I can just imagine what that permissions list will look like. And if I 
ever see a list like that on an app I'm about to install, it goes 
straight in the trash. This sounds like a long shot.

Of course, a "standard" app will soon become compulsory for tracking and 
permission to be out on the street, as it did in China.
