This has been getting some publicity recently, sharing it here for those who may not have come across it :)

There are several versions of an app, although the Android version isn't so good according to reviews.

Hope people find this useful :)

There have been lots of complaints regarding the intrusive nature of the data that the RA app collects.

I have signed up, didn't really need any more info than I give to anyone else. DOB was the only one that I don't think they really need, but I suppose it gives some number crunchers sat in an office something to do.

I have adopted 4 squares round my house that I walk regularly with the dog. I have also adopted one that had no footpaths in as I thought that one would be rather easy to complete.

Being, I suppose, new to using Apps, I'm surprised how much of your life they want to grab or at least have access to: location, contacts, photos, browse history, etc

As far as D.O.B. is concerned, there are very few organisations that need to know this, so if they insist, I give them fake day and month digits ::)
