Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-7822) Too many / wrong permissions for
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:56:33 GMT
Adam Tuttle created CB-7822:

             Summary: Too many / wrong permissions for 
                 Key: CB-7822
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin Device Orientation
            Reporter: Adam Tuttle
            Priority: Minor

It seems intuitively incorrect that the Device Orientation plugin needs to request the permissions
ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION and ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION. I did a little bit of research and haven't
found anything conclusive one way or the other. I just know that I need this information to
make my app look good, but now my users could think that I'm watching their GPS for no reason.

This was the best information I was able to find on getting orientation, but I don't see any
discussion on the necessary permissions.

I wish I had a better idea of whether or not this is a bug or a "feature" of the way android
permissions are provisioned, but this is the best I can do at the moment. Can someone please
look into this?
