It's useful to me. This app is lean and efficient. I can't possibly remember what permissions all of my apps have. With this I can look them up nice and easy. I think that sometimes apps sneak in additional permissions during an update so if I suspect something shady is going on this helps me identify what's what. Then I can decide if I want to uninstall the app or keep it.
Tips If your gonna use this and you're also rooted get Xprivacy to disable those info stealing permissions. The Xposed installer has awesome privacy modules to install along side this app.
No ads, zero unnecessary permissions, organized, and informative - exactly the way an app should be. The only thing I would add or change is a way to alphabetize lists to make it easier to find a particular app.
4.4.2 Removes App Op from the OS!! :( Apparently 4.4.2 removes App Op from the Android operating system. App Op is what is needed for apps like this (Permissions Managers) to work. I think this is terrible as I have installed quite a few apps now which have unnecessary permissions which I had disabled via App Op. I now need to try and remember which they are and remove them even though I need them. But I can't have them with their possible 'spying/hacking' permissions. I think going back to good old Windows/Windows Phone is becoming more attractive as time goes on, as for example I love reading the great formatted news on Windows 8 every morning from the news tile. I'm very disappointed in Google regarding this App Op change.
Well done! This app gives the permission facts in a very simple to understand way. Navigation is clear and screens are uncluttered. That said, I will be uninstalling ONLY because my other app, Addons Detector, provides the same info and has some other features I use. If permission info is all you are looking for, by all means, d/l this app!
Great for what it is Great app. Now Google needs to add back the functionality to let us do something about excessive permissions required by apps and block the ones we don't want to give
