    I recently purchased a Samsung Vibrant( GalaxyS) and was curious if I should be concerned of the warning flags that show up prior to downloading app's through the market. i.e. twitter.
    The screen says: This application has the access to the following:
    -Your location
    -Network Communication
    -Your personal information
    -Your accounts
    -System Tools

    This makes me a little unsure of continuing with the download. Is there a way I can upload the apps from a laptop and securing the phone from access to this info.

    If this has been discussed can someone post a link? Thank you in advanced.

    no.. there's no cause for concern at all. It is more for informational use than warning.

    Welcome! :) Check out my apps!

    Happy to be here:).
    Sometimes the little things are under appreciated and taken for granted. its easy to criticize, but its difficult to offer a solution.
