(Archived) Access to personal details


Recommended Posts

Why does Evernote want access to so much of the phone's information? When I go to install it, it wants confirmation of access to my location, personal contact data, phone state and identity. Why?

The location information is used to add "geo-tags" onto your notes, so that you can see where you took a note later. I assume "phone state" is required so that our app can start and stop properly as you change contexts. Your contacts are used if you email someone a note from within the application - we auto-complete as you type against this list.

I'm not sure what "identity" means in this context.
