App Review: Startup Auditor

Welcome our 2nd guest-poster, Ellie, who describes herself as the “ultimate geek girl” and has a blog at thepinkc.net. Enjoy her app review! ~Renee Android is a great platform for mobile phones – but bloatware is added to it by our phone companies to subsidize the cost of our phones.
