Most of these apps are running a lot of services in the background, often without their knowledge. In this regard, numbers 1 and 2, Fitbit and Verizon, are lord and master. On iOS and Android, the applications use 14 of the 16 available services. Which are they exactly? This can be clearly seen in the pCloud preview below:
