How to determine whether an app is invasive or not?
I don't really know how to check this. I know that if the organization behind an app has good practices, then I should be able to trust their apps. Otherwise, I don't know how to trust anything on the app store. For example, I want a screen recorder, but I don't know where to find a non invasive one.

Creating a brochure to empower iphone users
This brochure intends to minimize data footprint, increase autonomy and creating independence from big tech corporations. I want the content to be as down to earth as possible. I will avoid technical language. I will explain exactly what you win by making the switch to certain apps. I will encourage better digital issue awareness. I will inform about what settings to use. It will be written in my mother tongue norwegian. Therefore I will inform about a norwegian digital rights organization. I encourage to post other suggestions. I will supply this with a brochure on digital issues.

A decent start to reduce your data footprint
The article talks exclusively about how to set your settings and explains briefly what this will and will not do. They goes through settings about location, advertising and Background App refresh.

Why we need this community?
You may wonder, why did I create a community to liberate a system that is fundamentally flawed in terms of proprietary software? 1.3 billion devices use the apple ecosystem. Most of them use some combination of google, facebook, instagram, spotify, iCloud and so on. Even though privacy can't be completely achieved, it can be significantly improved. We can also motivate to a more healthy mentality around digital issues. Grass root activity is important. We need to work locally and motivate family, friends and strangers in our area to choose the ethical and be class concious. If we say they have to unchain themselves from everything they know without knowing where they are going, they will not motivate themselves to change. We need an overview of what apps are good, what we should do to preserve as much privacy as possible and with as much freedom as possible. Unchaining the users from the Apple, Google, Facebook, Spotify and other ecosystems. Giving them more freedom over their media and their favourite content.
