comment Are users always asked to accept application permissions?
It is the same functionality as hitting "Run" as an "Android Application" in Eclipse I believe, something the OS must recognize. The link you gave states exactly the information I was looking for under the section heading How Users Understand Third-Party Applications.

@ Matthew Read Thanks for the answer, I should have clarified that I was asking in the context of non-rooted phones. This question is relevant to a research paper I am writing.

comment Are users always asked to accept application permissions?
I tried posting an answer to my own question but am not allowed to do so due to user restrictions. Here was what I was going to post: Unless someone else has tested/experimented with this, I have found this under the [Android Developers Resource][1] stating that > Applications statically declare the permissions they require, and the Android system prompts the user for consent at the time the application is installed.
