Android clampdown on calls and texts access trashes bunch of apps

Re: The trouble is...

Android apps have routinely taken permissions to run round inside our phones, looking at anything they want and sending it home.

Still, better permissions controls could at least allow in-phone access to text messages and such - with a block on transmit - which would still impact users for desktop phone interfaces, but it's be an improvement.

But perhaps Google might be wary of anything that might be turned to switch off their slurp.
