Using eXtended Permission Manager, for each installed app, on single screen, you can:

  • View, grant or revoke manifest permissions
  • View AppOps permissions and choose one of multiple modes
  • Set your desired reference value for every changeable permission

Manifest permissions are those normally called permissions e.g. Storage, Camera etc. AppOps (app operations) is a robust framework Android uses at back end for access control. With every Android release manifest permissions are becoming more dependent on AppOps. So it's fun to control both simultaneously and see how they relate to each other.

In short, AppOps provide a fine-grained control over many of the manifest permissions. Plus it provides additional controls like background execution, vibration, clipboard access etc. Just install the app to explore it yourself.

When you reinstall an app, or change your device, or upgrade your ROM, it's a time-taking process to review all installed apps for granted permissions and revoke the unnecessary ones (after all privacy matters). PMX provides you the solution. Set reference states of permissions, which can be quickly backed up and restored, and colored bars at left make it quite easy to review packages and permissions at a glance.
