I originally asked this question in Open Source, but was redirected here :)
I've written my first app, to process images (user photos) on the phone. It writes to the jpegs on the phone, and maybe I'll add functionality to delete selected images.
Do I need to protect myself somehow against any liability, if someone experiences unintentional loss of data, say due to some software bug/error?
As I understand it (from the Open Source site), a software licence only deals with the source code per se, and not potential damage incurred by the binary (application itself). Is some form of waiver/disclaimer sufficient "protection"? Now, I am aware that this is perhaps taking things way too serious, but I still think it's an interesting and important question.
Seems everybody's putting apps on Google Play and the App Store... Is everybody taking all this into consideration, or is this really only a concern/worry if the app is a serious, full-time endeavor?
