    Angry androidcentral app wants access to set my Wallpaper etc. !!?? Why??

    This app has access to these permissions:
    Network communication
    full network access
    view network connections
    Storage
    modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
    System tools
    test access to protected storage
    Wallpaper
    set wallpaper

    Why ?
    I would like the app but I hate all these apps, that want access to a lot more than is necessary.

    Maybe because it have a wallpaper section that let you select wallpapers and set them, manually. If I was concerned about such things, I would be more concerned of the other permissions.

    Sure thats why I mentioned them all, but the wallpaper thing just seemed so ridiculous, when you only want a forum app.

    Before you download apps, study before hand what they can do, as for the forum app, it lets you download wallpaper`s from here, so that is why it has access to set the wallpaper.
