Android clampdown on calls and texts access trashes bunch of apps

I've been hit. The app I have spent 12 months developing (very part time on my own) to use for the emergency services will be unlikely to get accepted on the Play Store now.

Even though it needs SMS permissions to function (it is the primary function of the app) it won't be the default SMS app and would probably not be able to send SMS replies which makes it useless (unless sideloaded).

What a PITA.
