    Hey guys I'm new to android and I'm typing from my incredible right now and I'm loving it! But my question is for the apps market should I be concerned about which access different apps ask for? Like when I went to go download a game today it said this application asks for access to the internet which I expected but then it said also record calls. So I guess what I'm asking is should I worry about this... p.s I also know the ny times app ask for access to my contact list.

    It doesn't record calls, just your call state. So that if you get a call while in game, the game pauses and goes to the background so that you can take the call.

    Access to your contact list, on the other hand, I may worry about..
