Permissions :

- Approximate location : the weather widget has an option to use your current location to get weather data. The permission is needed to access the city you are in to display proper weather data.
- Read calendar events : the calendar widget needs this permission to send your upcoming events to Chromecast. If you do not have a calendar widget set up, the application does not look at your calendar data.
- Google Play billing service : necessary to make in-app donations to remove ads.
- Prevent phone from sleeping : if the phone sleeps while connected to the Chromecast, the connection is interupted. Therefore the application needs to prevent the CPU from going to sleep in order to keep the connection open.

Fantastic.. Needs E-Mail/ Message Notification Intergration Fantastic app with a stupendous amount of potential. Immediately next step is Message notification. Chromecast has needed this fearure for a very long time. Battery Updates, Call Notifications, Message/Email Integration... All very possible with this idea. Keep it going!
