REQ: Permissions

Post by charlieMOGUL » Sun Dec 02, 2012 11:20 pm

First off, thanks for creating an Android app. Absolutely awesome that you embrace the world's fastest-growing (mobile) OS :wink:

Could you please fine-tune the permissions ? Since this app is not delivered through the (official) Google Play store (yet), it's in theory more insecure.
As far as I know, there are no reasons for the app to
* read the call log
* write the call log
* modify contacts
* read contacs
* retrieve a list of running apps

The more people will pay attention to permissions, the more secure our world will be... (at least I hope)

Thanks once again,

Thanks for pointing me to the answers, great that (almost all) permissions are already explained.

Others are not defined but I guess that they will be especially when we determine did that came with libraries we need to use when were making other features.

That is why this is called Beta.
