Should ConnectBot stop requesting the "Write to External Storage Permission?" Originally it was added as a request to make local shell usage more useful.

However, beginning in KitKat, it is possible to use the app-specific area of the SD card without permissions. It can also be set to only request write external storage permission pre-KitKat.

What do you think? Should ConnectBot shave off one extra permission?

Yes, whittle the permissions down.
No, I use this functionality.
It should request it only pre-KitKat.

In preparation for the v1.8 release, we are asking for help translating the Play Store descriptions. Every effort is appreciated!

If you don't want to register for Launchpad, you can post the translations as comments on this post and we'll put them in.
