ABOUT PERMISSIONS:
Solo Lite is a freemium app, that is ad supported and it uses in app purchases to obtain full version features. (Don't hate me, even developers have to make a living :). For this, the app requires a few extra permissions (these are in the Lite version only, the full version has no ads or extra permissions). Below is a description of how these permissions are used:

**************************************************************
Required permissions for Solo Lite and the full version:

INTERNET ACCESS - Used for downloading lyric overlays, syncing purchased features, in-app billing and ads
VIEW NETWORK STATE - Solo checks if internet connection is up and enables/disables online features as appropriate
STORAGE - Used to backup/restore chords on the SD Card

**************************************************************
Permissions only required in Solo Lite. These are not used in the full version:

READ PHONE STATE AND IDENTITY - Only used to access the device ID. Solo does NOT access phone calls, etc. only the device ID (needed to uniquely identify the device and sync previously upgraded features)

The "Read phone state and identity" permission doesn't give devs access to passwords or other personal identity information. The only id obtained from this is the phone's IMEI number, which is a unique serial number tied to every device with a sim card. Knowing this number does not give devs access to any personal information, it only provides a way for us to reliably distinguish between different devices.

GET_ACCOUNTS - This is used by GetJar to identify users across multiple devices. This way, features upgraded through GetJar will still be available if you change your phone and reinstall the app on a new device. It is also used by in app billing to link purchases with your email account.

GET_TASKS - Used by the GetJar SDK. Not used any longer, but retained to support users who previsouly upgraded features via GetJar.

BILLING - Used for in-app purchases through Google Play and Samsung

COARSE LOCATION - Approximate network based location only. Used to serve more useful ads.

SYSTEM WINDOW - Used to show an ad on exit instead of on start-up. This makes the app start faster.
