General Permissions

view story

http://androidforums.com – Reading an Android book, I understand that app permissions can only be changed if phone is rooted. If so, why is that ?? A good percentage of people will not root their phones, so it is about time Google/Android changed this. I check to see what permissions an app I want to put on phone has before I accept it. I can only go by the number of downloads and feedback to tell me that a certain app is ok. Greg (General)
