The app you're using right now? The NSA is probably using it to spy on you

James Glanz, Jeff Larson, Andrew W. Lehren for The New York Times:

The documents show that the N.S.A. and the British agency routinely obtain information from certain apps, particularly some of those introduced earliest to cellphones. With some newer apps, including Angry Birds, the agencies have a similar capability, the documents show, but they do not make explicit whether the spies have put that into practice. Some personal data, developed in profiles by advertising companies, could be particularly sensitive: A secret 2012 British intelligence document says that spies can scrub smartphone apps that contain details like a user’s “political alignment” and sexual orientation. link

OK, I get it NSA, your tentacles are everywhere…(but Angry Birds Star Wars is still safe right?)
