I've written my first app, to process images (user photos) on the phone. It writes to the jpegs on the phone, and maybe I'll add functionality to delete selected images.
Do I need to protect myself somehow against any liability, if someone experiences unintentional loss of data, say due to some software bug/error?
If yes, does that mean I'll need a serious software licence, e.g. GPL or Apache 2.0? I'm thinking to release a free (maybe "ad-sponsored") version of the app to begin with, and maybe later release a premium version. Still, this is only a hobby project.
Any thoughts and advice? I'm aware of the licence chooser at http://choosealicense.com, but I wanted to discuss this here first.
Seems everybody's putting apps on Google Play and the App Store... Is everybody taking all this into consideration, or is this really only a concern/worry if the app is a serious, full-time endeavor?
