  3. 3. Your Questions Oct 5, 2011 • How can I create separate shopping lists for various stores? • How can I create a new Photo Album directly on my iPad? • Can you tell me why I got a virus warning on my iPad when playing Scrabble Blast? • Are there any privacy concerns with using an iPhone. Your SolutionsCreate shopping lists for different stores. ShopShop –shopping list (universal-free) http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/shopshop-shopping-list/id288350249?mt=8Create a new Photo Album directly on the iPad.You can’t, without the use of a third party application.See the list below (from AppAdvice BTW) for recommendations on apps to create PhotoAlbums directly on your device and organize your pictures.http://appadvice.com/appguides/show/photo-organizationReason for a virus warning on iPad when playing Scrabble Blast.We are not sure but it appears some iPad users have been sent a bogus email link withmalware. See the following for more details…http://www.techradar.com/news/computing/apple/apple-ipad-users-targeted-by-itunes-virus-685706#ixzz0mDGM79cFAnother possibility is the wireless router may have been the source of the message.Are there privacy concerns with using an iPhone?Yes. Cell phone listeners like Mobile Spy and Flexispy PRO-X can compromise privacy byallowing others to recording incoming/outgoing text messages, emails, & call history, GPStracking, live listening and viewing photos snapped on the iPhone. Flexispy when installeduses the name "phones". After installation the application uninstaller cannot remove it. Theuser interface of Flexispy.A is only accessible by entering a special code in the phone number
  4. 4. field.Remove Flexispy Using F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus • Download F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus from http://f-secure.mobi and activate the Anti-Virus • Scan the phone and remove any components of the program • Reboot the phone to remove memory-resident components • Go to application manager and remove the "phones" application to remove any remainingcomponentsUsers also suggest keeping Bluetooth turned off and removing the cell phone battery atairports and similar places.
