    Suspicious app permissions.

    Check out the photo. Ingress app wants access to modify and delete my contacts. Is this common as I have not noticed this permission request before.

    Been there since the early days, IIRC.

    It allows for you to invite friends.

    Allowing you to invite people from your contact list requires read access....not modify/delete.

    I don't care if these permissions have always been there. It's that they're there period.

    Doesn't it bother you? From a personal property standpoint and accidental deletion of personal property?

    I re-downloaded on Android to check it out.

    It lists reading contacts only. I did some asking around, and this seems to be all that is going in.

    In any case, I suspended that permission, and it still works.

    Installed. Now it says no accounts exist even though I have 3 gmail accounts on this BlackBerry device. Reinstalling.
