WHAT'S (STILL) IN THE WORKS
APP PERMISSIONS IN PLAIN ENGLISH
Here's why this app asks permission for certain things, in plain English:
First off, we're using the Android 6.x Marshmallow APIs, which means you you might be asked to allow the app to do something — say, access your SD card — while you're using the app. That's a good thing!
★Photos/Media/Files & Storage: These two permissions are used so you can upload images and the like to our forums. They're also used for downloading our podcast and from our wallpaper gallery.
★Wi-Fi connection: This helps us better serve our award-winning content to you. It's used for analytics and to make sure nothing's going to kill your connection or anything.
★Full network access/prevent device from sleeping/view network connections/set wallpaper: Gotta have network access to use the internet. Sleeping has to do with playback, and wallpaper is for setting your wallpaper in the wallpaper gallery.
Have a concern about a permission? Ask us! We're happy to help. Email [email protected]
