    Hi.

    What do you guys think about Handcent sms? I'm looking at it's permissions it requires and i think some of them goes a little deep.
    Is it a safe app?

    Have a nice day :)

    100% safe. One of the most popular messaging app's on the Market. Been using it for over a year now.

    Always wise to ask though, if in doubt. :)

    Thanks for your reply :)
    I just can't see why this app wants permission to read sensitive log data?

    It is primarily used for debugging the application. However, a lot of information is provided in those logs. For instance, if the app crashes on receiving a text message. The content of that message can be sent to the developer.
