    I have no freaking idea what has happened here. Somehow my app store has said I have somehow installed several “vibration” and “vibrator” apps without my permission. It says I installed them a couple days ago at two different times! I know I didn’t install them although my 3 year old son does play on my phone a lot.. but I dont see how he could have possibly done something like that. My boyfriend thinks I’m downloading some fu***** vibrators from an app now. Does ANYONE know of this happening before or how it could have happened period??

    You left off the StackExchange site devoted to Android: http://android.stackexchange.com I’m not a big fan of traditional forums and having to sift through all the inane and redundant “me too” posts in a forum thread to find the actually useful information. The stackexchange sites are a much more effective and efficient platform for Q&A and sifting through the noise.

    (sorry if this is a duplicate comment, I tried posting this from my Droid but it didn’t seem to work)
