Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-109) PhoneGap Library confuses the Marketplace capability detection
Date Tue, 22 May 2012 09:42:41 GMT


Dirkjan Mollema commented on CB-109:

I confirm this. Is there a workaround available for this?
Having simple apps which require all the user permissions will make users hesitate to download
and install this.
Imo this issue should have a higher priority

> Originally filed here:
> When WP7 applications are submitted to the marketplace the phone capabilities they use
are determined via static code analysis. This means that applications which use PhoneGap are
listed as having the following capabilities, regardless of whether they are used or not:
> data services, movement and directional sensor, microphone, music and video library,
owner identity, camera, contacts, camera, compass
> See this article for more details:
> Unless the marketplace approval changes, I think PhoenGap for WP7 needs to be split into
multiple assemblies based on the phone capability it uses.
