APP PERMISSIONS IN PLAIN ENGLISH
Here's why this app asks permission for certain things, in plain English:

★ Modify of delete the contents of your USB storage: This is for storing the images and little thumbnails in the app, so that it doesn't have to download them each and every time. That'd be bad.
★ Full network access: Everything we do comes from the Internet. Therefore, this app needs access to the Internet.
★ Set wallpaper: This app is based off the code from our sister sites, some of which have wallpapers galleries.
★ Test access to protected storage: It's possible for USB storage (see the first bullet point here) to be protected. This tests for that and declares that it's testing for that.
★ View network connections: If you're not connected, you can't get Connectedly. Makes sense.

A word on analytics: We use Quantcast and Flurry analytics, as well as Google Analtyics. We've used Quantcast on the traditional web side of things forever (http://www.quantcast.com/androidcentral.com) as sort of a transparent look at traffic. Flurry gives us an anonymous look at how and where our app is being used, and it'll help us make the app better. More than 300,000 apps use Flurry analytics. You can find out more at http://www.flurry.com/flurry-analytics.html.

Thanks for checking us out!

I'm not sure how this app works or is used for (thus the 5 stars) but maybe putting news articles under different categories would be better?

Awesome. Loving the site, forums and now the app. Glad night mode was included as well. Makes browsing the forums late at night in bed easier on the eyes.
