Voodoo Carrier IQ detector application released for Android

A new Android app to detect whether your smartphone has any Carrier IQ tracking/monitoring software installed on it has been released, the Voodoo Carrier IQ detector, giving users a simple way to put their minds to rest on privacy. The handiwork of Android app developer supercurio, the tool is only a few hours old and only partially finished, with the consequent warning that the results can’t be entirely relied on yet.

supercurio has offered up the source code under an open-source license for those who want to help refine the tool, so we’re guessing the rough edges and reliability will be polished off in short order.
