Android developers can look for the Android app “capable of receiving, handling, or sending data over the Internet” by checking whether the app has a “status bar” feature that shows an icon indicating whether the application is capable of receiving data.
If a feature is not present, the app should not be installed.
If it is, then developers should be able to report the problem to Apple, which will make changes to the app to fix the problem.
For the most part, developers of iOS-based apps are well-prepared for such a bug, with guidelines and support in the developer guide.
However, the bug reports filed by Android developers tend to be more sporadic, and many of them do not even include the word “bug.”
This article provides tips and tricks to find the issue, and a list of the Android apps that are known to be vulnerable to the issue.
If you’re still having trouble with an app that you’ve installed on your Android device, you can contact the app developer for a replacement app.
