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. 💛

When I was unable to UNinstall a virus with several different malware apps (wasted $$$) - but this one got the job done! *(and it was free)* I'm forever grateful. It's a little difficult to navigate through but worth figuring out since it successfully Uninstalled several viruses

Works perfectly on my rooted phone. The user who said "modern" android phones have this functionality built-in is a level 1 user (knows how to turn on a phone). Try searching for a specific obscure permission by string name with the built-in settings and tell me how it goes ;)
