Topic: Data flow through apps

Some of you might have already seen this article http://m.phys.org/news/2015-10-nature-apps.html (I saw it first via ERCCIS, thanks!) but it does have quite a shocking/useful stat in it about where data goes to when it goes into an app:

"Of 755 nature-based recreational apps, 219 had the ability to log sightings, but only 25 gave users the facility to upload these to biodiversity monitoring schemes. Surprisingly, only 17 of 33 citizen science project apps had this functionality."
