How does DoggCatcher use each of the permissions that are required?

Some of the permissions below are required only for optional features within the application. The Android framework does allow for conditionally requiring these permissions based on usage of features.

  • BLUETOOTH - to detect when a bluetooth device is connected to start playing audio
  • INTERNET - to update feeds and download media files from the internet
  • WAKE_LOCK - to keep device awake when updating feeds or downloading media files
  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - to check if wifi is connected to enable download conditions
  • READ_LOGS - to send debug logs to developer when user requests
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - to start the application upon boot (if configured)
  • READ_PHONE_STATE - detect when calls are being made so audio can be paused
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - to save media files to the SD card
  • GET_TASKS - some devices require this to launch DoggCatcher in response to headset connect events
  • CHECK_LICENSE - validates the license with the google market app
