I came across an app I considered questionable on the market the other day, and I figured I'd go over what I had installed. I perused my 90 apps, and ended up taking off one or two. After going through what I've installed, I decided to look at some apps already on the phone. I feel kind of uncomfortable with what I discovered. FM Radio - read SMS or MMS write contact data full Internet access modify/delete SD card contents - Presumably for storing the scanned channels read phone state and identity change your audio settings - Volume, etc display system-level alerts, modify global system settings, prevent phone from sleeping read Home settings and shortcuts, write Home settings and shortcuts PDF Viewer mount and unmount filesystems I do not get this one at all. Adobe Reader on the market doesn't need it. Why does this PDF Viewer? HTC Widgets - These can do basically anything, but here's a couple things: Directly call phone numbers, send SMS messages coarse (network-based) location, fine (GPS) location Google mail Why does Facebook, Twitter, and Weather need access to these things? Coin flip? Clearly it needs to Twitter, Facebook, and SMS everyone I know whenever I flip. I wouldn't want them to miss out. Am I the only one who's even slightly concerned by these?
