Dear Marco Arment

Thank you for your honesty in this little “debacle”.

I felt like iOS had given me far too much access to Address Book without forcing a user prompt. It felt a bit dirty.

And this is yet another reason why you should pay good, honest, hard working, developers, money for their apps.

And developers, we users appreciate this sort of candidness, I guess you could call it open-ness, or full disclosure. It makes us trust you. It makes us feel like we matter. I guess it’s kind of like a relationship, there’s some give, some take, but at the end of the day neither of us feels like we’re giving up, or settling.
