It may not be enough, but it's definitely a step in the right direction, I'm shocked something like this hasn't been done already.
It is true, there is no real agreement that pops up that you read, you merely click the download button. I am happy to the tech giants to take this step, I will certainly look at my app purchases more carefully.
Agreements like this remind me of the South park human centipede episode where everyone blindly agrees to something just so they can use the software and in the end you have no idea what you are actually agreeing to.
Atleast when this comes though you will know what whoever app it is wants from you.

I like this for the transparency. I don't think the major issue here is only transparency though. There is not enough accountability for these companies. They want to sell your information, and keep you out of the loop.
I would like to see clearer more concise agreements/laws as opposed to just more.
