I agree to disagree with you on this one...
Its to different things to access the Address book and upload it to somewhere! Yoy can't be shure about it on android other than you can't say what it does with your addressbook. Espessially with special apps like that path one. It might be to much to ask for the user to know how one really benefits of the app needing access. It might need it for some elements but without trying you really can't say can you?
Apple should have made it a warning to other appdevelopers to kick the Path developer out of the store for 2 months because of the breach in contract!!! Because that's what it really is!!!!
