Very good. It detected apps with push ads that other ads detection apps didn't (tested "Ad Detector", "Ad Network Detector", "Addons Detector"; nice apps but they miss stuff)

Used in conjunction with Appbrain, this is brilliant, lets you know before you commit to an app, if you're happy with its level of nosi-nes !!!

spots potential privacy issues with practice, I can usually predict what it will warn about when reviewing the perms an app demands. Superb. Plus, it provides some comfort in the face of the recently weakened app permission system.
