Used in Caller ID for finding out whether the caller already exists in your contacts in which case no lookup in the phone directory is needed.

Write contact data, Your accounts:
Needed for the "save contact" function in the phone book.

Add/modify/read calendar events:
Needed in the Timetable service for directly adding an itinerary to the calendar. Unfortunatley the permission "read calendar events" is needed for this process to work as well.

Internet access:
All Services need this as all the information comes from our server.

Read phone state and identity:
Essential for caller ID.

Read call log
This is used for the feature to search numbers from the call history

Automatically start at boot:
Necessary for caller ID to work reliably on Android 4.0 devices.
Note: To avoid that search.ch will start a background process at boot just disable caller identification in the options menu.

Recent changes:

Could you explain why, while I do a simple search, the app needs to have access to my contacts, my location, the phone ID, and why the app needs to run at startup ?

App Drawer Bloat Great app in general regarding design and content delivery. However, latest update places 7 individual app components in my app drawer. Why introduce clutter in an app that had a perfectly structured root menu? If the user wants to directly use Timetable when opening the app, then introduce a "default section" option in the main app. Don't split it in 7 components which are thrown in my App drawer. The latter doesn't make any sense. 5 stars when the cluttering issue is fixed. *fixed back to 5 stars*

7 neue Symbole? Downgrade! Vorgängerversion zweckmässig, zielgerichtet, gut. Neue Version zwingt einem die "Zusatzfunktionen" (Kinoprogramm, Wetter, ...) mit 7 neu erstellten Symbolen für jede Funktion im Appdrawer auf. Deinstallieren und ältere Version aus Backup wiederherstellen. Oder zur Konkurrenz.

7 Icons im App Drawer Sagt mal habt ihr einen Knall? Ihr plaziert mir 7 Icons für eure eine App im App Drawer, als hätts da nicht schon genug Müll der keiner braucht. Wer hatte denn die Schnappsidee?
