    Default Those idiots killed app ops!

    I really enjoyed the ability to manage permissions individually, especially for free apps and games. Unfortunately, android 4.4.2 either wiped app ops completely or hid it even deeper. Anyone else mad at this?

    It may have been removed because the developer want something enabled for a reason. If the wrong thing is disabled, then it can cause the app to misbehave.

    Don't turn off ads and other revenue features in free apps. We need to pay developers for their work.

    I understand this point of view, but as noticed with a certain flashlight
    app, app devolpers may hide certain aspects of the app in the slew of permissions, and i don't want a simple note app to be able to access my location!

    Now i know that not all apps are like this, but i enjoy being a power user!

    I get the outrage that app ops has been removed, but I also understand why it is kind of a difficult subject from a developer's point of view. At least the permissions still show up before installing an app so you can choose not to install it.

    I just want one way for google to realize that they are not king George the third. When we users get a new feature, then it is removed because we could "hurt" our apps, a revolution can take place. I want to start a petition right here, right now to bring back app ops in the dev setting, with all the health and safety that google wants. Who is with me?

    Well, to be fair, it wasn't even meant for us to use in the first place.

    It's fine I think the feature is great too. But I can see why some developers are opposed to it.

    Niw that my rage has subsided sligtly, i can kinda see why some devolper might be ticked to learned rhat the functions that his app needs to work are disabled because the end user thought them as unessacary. Bur, then maybe they should explain more..
