Porsche is celebrating its best year in history by giving every single employee a bonus. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwj7vp1DQ

Pushed 2.12.9.1. This is my latest attempt at getting the Android 6 permissions handling right. My app is a utility that the user does not really interact with the UI much. Android 6 permissions are meant to be handled on an as needed basic really. I can't do that so much because many of the permissions are needed for the background service and not the UI. Now it gives you 1 shot to get it right when you install the app. The only one that checks again is the storage access if you go to the manage data screen. If you get the rest wrong, I will presume you wanted it that way and stuff just won't work. Not sure how to make this better really since some don't want to allow some of the permissions. As you saw in my recent rant about permissions the lack of trust leads to denying permissions which leads to stuff not working which leads to bad ratings, uninstalls, etc.
