(I am new to Android and to this site, so please bear with me if my question is extremely stupid and if I got the tags all wrong. Feel free to improve, though.)
I want an app to scan the occasional QR code which usually should contain an URL.
The other day I meant to download an app for that and searched the market for one that does not want access to all my contacts, my granny's underpants, and whatever else it could get its grubby hands on — to no avail.
How is it that they all want to dig into my
pants contacts? Am I missing something or is that really just data mining on the app writers' part?
