Interesting argumentation: shut up/no, you shut up.
Basically the very good warning/justification is in the second post of the original TaiChi thread by @M66B.
together with the post 45, it can be assumed:
it is a system level application
it does have closed, obfuscated code
it did not passed any external audit*
it does contain some controversial sentences in T&Cs
* - perhaps as the result of being written by a single person (in theory - we cannot know if there is someone behind)
Now it is each user individual choice: use it or not. If you do trust the developer, "do not have anything to hide" - feel free to use it.
Personally, if I'd be interested then yes: I would use it. After setting it up on a dummy old phone for a month and checking traffic very carefully. single encrypted packet would eliminate it from use.
But again, it is a personal choice of each individual user to give access to all and any private information stored and obtained by the phone (voice, video recording capabilities are obvious) to the developer who does not trust the users enough to deobfuscate/open the code.
It is just a mutual trust: you trust them as much as they trust you, isn't it?
Do you really think open source is a good thing? For individuals, open source may mean security, but many families have been destroyed by others doing all kinds of things (Translate notes: Pornography, gambling, drugs are mentioned in the context) with your open source code. You just need to say, I open source, it's none of my business.
P.S. About this spying / tracking / data stealing - some parts of Android are also close-source, and are maintained by Google. Actually, 60% of whole software is close-source. On your PC, the whole software is close-source. Windows is close source. So, you trust your data to such companies like Google, M$, but to a no-name guy that writes mods for Android - no? I just don't get your opinion
