Re: Android permissions design

You cripple the device so it can't do much of anything.
That's the real problem with modern security issues. Everything is about trojans placed in software that's supposed to be legitimate but really isn't. A lot of this is driven by various forms of the cheapskate mentality that prevents both Free Software and Shareware from flourishing.
You might want to send messages.
Although ultimately end users should be able to revoke any permission after installation. We should never be in a position to be held hostage to developers that want the moon and the stars in terms of system permissions.
I should be able to do something like I do with noscript. ANY app is banned from sending text messages unless I say otherwise. Doesn't matter what it asked for during installation.
