My personal project here will use Fliplet to investigate how the publishing stores, Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, plus private App store platforms, work.
How features (camera, audio, location etc), are tested in submitting to a store and they assure nothing dark larks inside it for the user.
I am looking for as many experiences of loading and testing Apps, good-bad-ugly, that can be collated anonymously. Development and non-store testing tools used, stores used, issues, trivia, rejections, and anything relevant all help. The analysis (no identifiable data) will be circulated to the National Centre for Cyber Security (NCSC) CISP, community as a contribution to security guidance for Apps in the future.
This is all open and transparent so can talk through this community. Can also exchange direct by email if you’d prefer. Any questions please ask.
