    Permissions
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
    • read the contents of your SD card
      Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.
    • modify or delete the contents of your SD card
      Allows the app to write to the SD card.
    • control vibration
      Allows the app to control the vibrator.
    • access approximate location (network-based)
      This app can get your location based on network sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi networks. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them.
      (5.1)
    • run foreground service
      Allows the app to make use of foreground services.
    • prevent phone from sleeping
      Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.
    • view network connections
      Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
