The iPad app Email Marketing Pro – an emailharvester

Email Marketing is a powerful and easy tool for building email list targeted to a specific market area. It is as simple to use as a search engine, You only need to specify the keywords and Email Marketing will bring thousand of emails addresses parsed from the search results.

How to get the emails of potential customers in three simple steps:

1) Select the search criteria. This is the most important decision to get an accurate email list. We recommend you to try the keywords in a web search engine and refine the keywords until you get the more adequate pages for your market target. You can also especify the number of domains to search. Based in our experience you will get from 5 to 10 emails for each domain.
2) Start the search. Email Marketing uses an advanced multy threading system to get high throughput. You will be permanently informed about the number of domains and pages already explored, emails extracted and you can get an idea of the remaining time taking a look at the top progress bar. You can stop the search at any time without losing the information collected so far: You always have an access to results of the search.
3) Export the email list to your system. You can export emails in CSV format, which is adequate for import in databases and Outlook Contacts, or select the VCF format which is the standard virtual card format for contact interchange and therefore for GMail, Apple Agenda and many other email systems.

Grab the emails of your potential customers in less than a hour.

The app is called Email Marketing Pro in Apples app store.

Sending email to addresses harvested like this is pure spam.
Where is the opt-in?

Update
I fired off an email to the maker of the program and got the following answer from a Javier Nieto at 3y3.net:

Hi,
The list created will always contains the email and the page where the
email appears. So you only harvest public emails. It is perfectly
legal to send an email to a public email and if anyone ask you where
do you get his email, you will always reply with the URL where the
email appears. You only need to add an ‘unsubscribe’ link to all your
mailings,
Best regards

So his definition is something along the lines of “legal spam”.
One simple word is enough: Spam.
