android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE is used to determine the existence and quality of a phone's network connection for retrieving advertisements.

android.permission.GET_TASKS is used to prevent advertisements from being retrieved when an application is in the background by checking to see if the application's task is active when an advertisement is requested.

android.permission.SET_WALLPAPER is used to set the home screen background wallpaper.

android.permission.VIBRATE is used to vibrate the phone on successful completion of setting the wallpaper.

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE is used to save images to the SD card. Images are automatically saved in a sub-folder of /wallpapers/ on your SD card named based on this app. They are only saved to the SD card when you set them as a wallpaper. This way, if you remove the app, you will retain the wallpapers on the SD card. You may delete the wallpapers from your SD card if you wish without affecting the functionality of the app.

Needs too many permissions. Phone identity? Really?

This app violates the creative commons license. You've altered the original work, which you can't do, also, I never received a copy of said license, which must be done, or it terminates your use of said license. Next time, read what a CC license is.
