I know I would.

Unless you come up with a better gameplan, I call this the fox guarding the hen house, and that just doesn't fly.
Unlike McAffee or Norton, I'm not out to make money. I did my research on the topic, I provided the findings, I tried to raise awareness. As far as I'm concerned, I can do no more. I wouldn't be objective if I didn't look at and disclose both sides of the topic.

I don't think PhoneSnoop can be compared to a virus, thus there is no point in drawing parallels to McAffee or Norton releasing their own virus. I'm not selling my spyware removal app. I will not charge for my app now or in the future. As I replied to @daphne, I will be updating my Kisses app to detect PhoneSnoop as well. This is so that users who aren't fully aware of what's happening on their phones can benefit as well.
