    A good developer will explain some or all permissions in the app description. Keep in mind that some permissions have a relatively broad usage--for example, permission to use the camera doesn't always mean the app wants to take pictures. It may just want to access the LED flash, which is technically part of the camera.

    When choosing an app to install, read over the app description to see if the developer explains the permissions, and also read through some of the reviews to see what other users have experienced.
