Adam Tuttle commented on CB-7822:
---------------------------------

Can I at least get confirmation from someone on the project that you've seen this issue, let
alone verified it?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-7822
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Device Orientation
>            Reporter: Adam Tuttle

> 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. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2795833/check-orientation-on-android-phone
> 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?
