Kismet World Wide Consulting performed technical analysis and wrote the technical reports detailing just how scary the privacy risks are of popular mobile health and fitness apps, along with a HOW TO for developers detailing how to do privacy right. The work was performed for Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (https://privacyrights.org), funded by a grant from the California Consumer Protection Foundation.
In 2015 Kismet World Wide Consulting gave presentations at the Crypto-Thon! event hosted by the EFF and Wikimedia, at the Oslo Freedom Forum, and at the r00tz Asylum event at DEF CON describing the privacy and security risks of using mobile apps, how to identify who your mobile apps are talking to and what they are revealing about you, and how to protect yourself online. This work was sponsored by The Wickr Foundation, a global initiative focused on building the Private Web by advancing private communication and uncensored information.

We've developed several useful and intuitive applications for mobile platforms including Android and iOS (iPhoneTM, iPadTM, iPod touchTM). Here are two projects that we can talk about and are particularly proud of:
BeeLine Reader and BeeLine for Education makes reading faster and easier by using a color gradient that guides your eyes from the end of one line to the beginning of the next. We helped BeeLine add functionality to the BeeLine family of iOS apps to provide text coloring to Kindle eBooks and many popular websites on your iPhone and iPad.
BeeLine is especially helpful for those with reading problems including those diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia, or a learning disability.
