    As anyone even thought an application might be able to send all your contacts' email address over the Internet, without your consent and without notice?

    Since applications have access to Contacts without warning and they have access to the Internet, it is very easy to just send these information over to a remote server.

    What do you think about that?

    Which is probably one of the reasons Apple has to approve the app, to make sure you don't pull crap like that.

    I'm pretty sure people who are licensed to distribute applications can be tracked down by Apple is something like this were to happen.
