If you wanted to see what the apps on your mobile device are up to
(especially operators trying to understand the impact of mobile apps
on their infrastructure), current instructions on the web involve
jail-breaking, setting up access-points and hubs and what not. It's
gotta be lot simpler than that.

A couple of things you can do with the packets you capture:
. Use http://www.pcapr.net/xtractr to analyze the apps, generate
reports and charts and go to town
. Be nice and share non-sensitive application traffic back to the
pcapr community

May the packets be with you!
