Some permissions might worry you a little. They worry me so, thanks but no thanks.” The critic also left a picture of what he was talking about when it comes to permissions. Some of the things the application says it accesses are the state of the device and your identity, audio recordings, pictures and video, location services, and reading the SD card on the mobile device. Of course, individuals have to allow these permissions or not and the choice is in their hands.
