I don't want this, I want something more legalese !
Actually, I want something a bit more technical and specific to the Direct Dialer app
You're in the right place.
Permissions and Reasons
What permissions does the Direct Dialer app ask for, and why does it need them ?
These permissions are used to list your contacts, read their number and start dialing them (what happens when you touch the shortcut).
These permissions are for installing a shortcut and removing it from your home screen.
Is there anything you've missed ?
I hope not, it's a pretty simple app, so I don't need many permissions and I'm personally pretty suspect of apps that want too many permisisions, so I'm glad someone else is reading this page.
