Apple responds to ‘Find and Call’ spam app

Apple on Thursday responded to complaints that an app called “Find and Call” was spamming users after it was installed.

“The Find & Call app has been removed from the App Store due to its unauthorized use of users’ Address Book data, a violation of App Store guidelines,” an Apple representative told The Loop.

The app would apparently ask the user for permission to access the contacts and then would send messages to every phone number and email address it could find.
