    Does this mean that an app has access to internal AND sd card contents, or just the contents of the sd card? Thanks Everyone. -H

    Well it says sd card so i would take that to mean it can only access/modify the sd card.

    If you have a singe-card device such as the HTC Desire, then an app with that privilege will have access to the removable sdcard ("/sdcard").

    If you have a dual-card device such as the Samsung Galaxy, then an app with that privilege will have access to the built-in sdcard ("/sdcard") and the removable sdcard ("/sdcard/sd").

    :)

    So do we really want them to have such control over our data? Do you think its a concern? Because I enjoy playing words with friends, I just dont like the modify/delete contro thing. Mine is a Samsung Galaxy giving them access to both storage areas.
