    good, i always wanted a explanation of exactly what im giving permission to, some apps i dont understand why they ask for permission, look at simple things like NOTEPAD, it only asked for Storage to SD which is logical to save all data(thought when you factory reset, you dont see the files back :O ). any ways, i vaguely remember removing permission from some apps. dont know how but I did it once in Samsung Gem, and it all went to hell... oh well, thanks for the great info.

    Great post!
    I know that getting apps registered into google play and amazon is tough, and I appreciate all the hard work devs do so that we can have safe apps on our phones...
