Incredible app! I installed it and found that I had purchased the PRO some time ago! Don't know why I uninstalled it! It lists all your apps, showing all the permissions you have granted each. Everything is in alpha order making it so easy to open the apps and make adjustments! Very nicely written and easy to operate. It's a handy tool and one that might save you from prying eyes.

Phenomenal App Permission Manager. So many ways to slice and dice the seemingly endless rats' nest-like permission schema giving a better understanding of groups of potentially related permissions and the apps that have them. For instance, i searched for the keyword "user" and found far more related permissions and a lot more apps that have those permissions. For instance, how can one tell what apps have login prompts for users and are they adequately secured? I'm doing the same for "accounts."

aSpotCat is an essential Android security tool. It provides users a quick, reliable way to directly survey all apps word-for-word permissions, revealing an otherwise off-limits, or beyond-surface, "raw" view in to the user's Downloaded & System apps permissions capabilities in detail, and by category. For example, useful to identify connectivity vulnerabilities from wifi, network, & broadcasts permissions running rampant in all variety of apps. Totally worth it to support app for ad free use. 💛
