    So, I just nerdgasmed a little when I deployed my first self-written program to my phone, and it actually did what I meant it to.

    Problem is, while installing the APK, it asks for a couple of unexpected (unreasonable, even) permissions. It wants to edit/delete files, and it wants ID and "state" information on calls. (Bear with me, please, I'm translating the GUI on the fly.)

    My app, being a horribly rudimentary Baby Steps kind of thing, does two things. It shows a hidden TextView. Then it hides it again. I don't get how that ties up with the odd permissions requests. They are not in my Manifest.

    Any idea on what can cause this? People are getting all paranoid. :D

    Try adding the <uses-sdk> tag in the manifest. So, for example,

    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" android:targetSdkVersion="8" />

    <uses-sdk> | Android Developers
