Metadata+ is a smartphone app that alerts users to the time and location of drone strikes conducted by the United States. For each strike, it displays a brief sentence about the victims ("Tariq, 16, and Wahid, 12, were driving to pick up their aunt. A drone ended their journey.") and adds a pin to a drone strike map. The app's name comes from the peripheral information generated by communication, such as the location of a cell phone call, or the IP address for sending an email. According to a report published Monday by The Intercept, metadata is also the key way targets for drone strikes are detected.
