Invasion of privacy

App requires access to camera to work. Completely unnecessary for its educational purpose, and an invasion of privacy as far as I am concerned. Uninstalled the app.

Developer Response ,

Dear canbruce, we understand your privacy concerns. Camera access is required to use augmented reality and is only used to let you see and interact with CRISPR protein models in your own environment. We do not collect, view, or store information coming from your camera.

We’re a scientific research institute just trying to make fun educational opportunities for people. We hope you’ll give the app a try!

App Privacy

The developer, Innovative Genomics Institute, has not provided details about its privacy practices and handling of data to Apple. For more information, see the developer’s privacy policy.

No Details Provided

The developer will be required to provide privacy details when they submit their next app update.
