    Is there a way to know what data an application accesses, and when it does so?

    Is there a way to block it?

    A firewall application for the iphone?

    I know that you can turn off the GPS, globally, or "block" it when an application asks to access your location.

    I saw an article a few days ago that said there is quite a bit of personal info that apps can access via published API.

    This is exactly what I was looking for, but I haven't JB'd my phone (3GS w/3.1.2).

    I don't suppose anybody knows of a similar app from the App Store.

    Wonder what Apple would tell me why this functionality isn't a part of the OS.

    Apple would never allow something like that on the official AppStore. :)
