    I know this has come up in discussion before but I do not know if it has been definitely answered anywhere. Are there plans to add adjustments to Android app permissions like we can do with native apps currently?

    Android does not support changing permissions of apps. It's not likely BlackBerry will change the code enough for that to come baked into the runtime.

    I was wondering more along the lines of, does Google have plans to add this to Android and thus we would get it by default in the future sometime?

    Would you expect Google to allow that?

    There are going to be some user based permissions selections in Android L but its not in the preview so we don't know how exactly it will work but is looks somewhat like IOS in that its event based.

    Android rooted device can install privacy managers such as app ops or xprivacy to control app permissions. I have not tired app ops but I have used Xprivacy in the past. xprivacy sends a fake information instead of real info. We need something similar for BB. Although not sure how it will work since BB phones cannot be rooted.
