Evening, all -- Does anyone know what this permission actually means? All the Android Marketplace says when I hit it to explain the permission is that it "Allows this application to read your Email attachments". Which could be interpreted a number of different ways, so isn't helping shed any light for me. I asked the developer (of Kingsoft Office, the app in question) what it meant and why that permission was required. After all, I wouldn't want a third party to be able to read my email attachments. He said he asked his developing team and they explained that the app, a document creation and modification program, has a built-in email program, and that the permission grants the user the ability to read email attachments sent through that aspect of the app. In other words, that no, they don't have the ability to read the user's attachments (from that app or elsewhere); it's for the user's use only, and only when using that aspect of the app (vs. my regular email). But this seems a bit weird: many app permissions are developer-based, right? THEY want to know your phone state. THEY want to modify your SD card. THEY want to prevent the phone from sleeping when the app is being used, etc. That the email attachment reading permission would now allow the USER to do something, rather than allowing the developer to do or control something, seems odd. It's a permission, after all. I need to grant myself permission to view my email attachments? Anyway, I'm not trying to be paranoid, it's just the first time I've seen this permission required, it seems really odd, it's ambiguously worded in the Market's explanation, and with a chunk of time dedicated to searching online for an answer about what this permission actually allows, I found that no one seems to explain it. And granted, the developer answered my question quickly, and is PROBABLY being truthful, but on the flipside, what would someone who's being deceitful say? The same thing, of course: that it's perfectly safe to use. I'm being asked to trust something suspicious by someone I don't know enough about to trust, as it were... Anyone have any insight about what this permission truly entails?
