We've had several queries regarding the new permission "Photos/Media/Files" required for version 5.0
Q: Why does the app need access to my photos?
A: It doesn't! RingGo uses the "Photos/Media/Files" permission to integrate with Google Maps. Google Maps, part of Google Play Services, require this permission for caching map data. RingGo does not, and will not, access your personal data stored on your mobile phone.
Q: Where can I find more info about the permissions this app uses?
A: Please scroll to the bottom of the description for an in-depth explanation of each permission, how we use it, and what that means for you.
