Third party applications that break the rule!

From these forum discussions and problems with different applications you have, I have the feeling that these third party applications are not made very carefully and safe. Seems that the companies hurry up with the new applications, because the pressure is high and there is tough competition.

It is not possible that an application like Space Double to not be *absolutely safe*, after all we don't want to use the same pattern as with M$ software from PDAs, when we had to make backups of the device regularly, every day if possible, do we? Or even worst, like in case of SPV that even have an OTA backup feature, where every backup cost money.

Symbian and Series 60 Nokia devices were made with this idea in mind, that the data is very safe on the device, even if the user will *never* make any backup. And even more, the Symbian OS and Series 60 are designed in that way, that the devices should be able to work a long time (even years) without switch off, reboot, reset, etc.

From where it comes this situation, with hard reset, reboot, losing everything, reinstall, backup, losing memory, etc.??? Is this why we choose Symbian instead of M$? I don’t think so! The original applications are indeed made with the idea of being very safe and memory efficient, but unfortunately, *third party applications* are the ones that break this rule! So, if you want to have a safe working phone, don’t install everything you found around on your phone!
