    I want to download the Craftsy App. Why does it need access to my photos and files?

    Looking at the description, it might need to access your camera for some of its functions. App permissions often lack context... they don't explain why they call for a certain permission... and sometimes it isn't all that obvious why a certain permission is used when in fact it is required for a critical function.

    It also may need access to a part of a file that would appear to someone who didn't write the app to have nothing to do with it. (For instance - and I have no idea how close to reality this is - I might be able to turn the GPS on easier by calling a function in Maps than by calling an Android API, so I'd need access to Maps, even though my app doesn't display any maps.)

    Are you talking about the Crafty Classes app? Read the description of the permission, not just the header... It needs access to your SD card ( which in Android terms includes built in internal storage). If you're downloading and caching videos, you need somewhere to save them right?
