PocketPermissions

PocketPermissions


This is a guide that hopes to give the basic info most people want to know about the security of their phones, and when to download, and when not to download applications.

It's my hope that this will help people make more informed decisions and be safe about their application usage, privacy, and data. It is my firm belief that Android is a fundamentally safe platform and that with some common sense, diligence and the right knowledge, users can rest assured and enjoy their devices more thoroughly.

Exactly what I needed. Thank you for making this app. It has helped me so much in making decisions with purchasing apps. I noticed this app needs no permissions. :)

NEEDS SOME LOVE! This is a good little app that unfortunately feels unfinished. There seems like there is plenty of room to expand it into a really great app. Also, it would be great if this could be updated to bring it in line with KitKat. No love since Oct 2012!!

Handy resource Can you please add detail for "Read Google Service Configuration" that is a complete unknown for me and it seems very intrusive.

Crashes under Chameleon OS When I run the app and try an d look at permissions info my phone asks me how I want to complete the action. The only option that works is "application hardware" however the page keeps reloading and you can't really read the info
