    couple of questions from a new guy with a flipside


    I got the facebook app installed. My question is, will it do automatic updates all day long of what is happening on my facebook page? I only have a 200M data plan and only want to see updates if and when I open the app. Is there some place to change how it updates?

    Second on google maps do i have to enable "use wireless networks" and/or use "gps satellites" for maps to work properly? If so, then I guess I manuall turn these two on to use maps, then turn them off to save on battery life and data usage?

    Third, should I worry about these apps using my personal information, such as name, phone number, etc, stored in my phone? How do you know which apps to trust?

    Thanks

    1st- in settings you can chose refresh interval from 30 mins to never. The FB app does refresh every time you open it.

    2nd- It does need wireless network and GPS for accuracy, yes you can turn those off till you need them

    3rd- Make sure you get your apps from a trusted source, even than you can only hope.
