Perhaps it's just me, but I haven't noticed anyone being at all nervous or at least commenting on the amount of access some apps require. The majority of them tend to want internet access or not sleep the phone. These two I can understand, because at least if they don't have access to my personal data, they may want to (or need to) access web information for usage,high scores, etc. Not sleeping also makes sense. What really bothers me is when a rather innocuous piece of software, such as "Backgrounds" says that they want to have read and write access to my contact information. Huh?!? Why? I understand (or at least I think I do) about wanting to know the phone status, or to enhance my 'productivity' by auto-dialing numbers. But seriously, I would rather have an app cut and paste a number into my dialer and bring it to the foreground but NOT dial the number for me. Indeed, there are a number of tools and games that I have completely steered away from as I don't like the amount of access that they want to have. But when trawling through the comments (good or bad), no one seems to ever mention this side of things. So, am I just too paranoid? Or is it the new phone app/"I want to be ignorant" mentality of most people doesn't take this stuff into consideration?
