Just login with your normal google account or simply stop trolling us.

This app is simply letting you login because of their connection to their website. go back to 9gag or 4chan or whatever troll corner you come from, XDA is not the place for it.

Well, as per the OP's handle, I've said "Sayanora" to them as well. In fact, say "konnichiwa" to my ignore list!

Aside trolling, I would like to use this launcher without an authentication or at least an anonymous mode or something... It looks like very nice launcher and more people would probably try it but don't want any personal info involved.

The devs have stated, in other threads, that they do not store your personal data. They use either your Facebook or Google account to verify that you are who you say you are in order to have access to the servers to download the themes. It's to prevent people from having spamming their servers which they provide to us for the themes. This is much easier than having to register ANOTHER account and password. Rather, use the Google or Facebook account as a way to authenticate you to have access to their servers.

They do NOT store your personal information on their servers nor store it nor send/sell it out to other parties. It's authentication and that's it. Period. No malice is being done to you or your information.

Heck, just having a smartphone alone is putting more PI out there than this app would.

And all those permissions it needs access to? You do realize that the majority of the stock apps you have loaded already have access to one or more of those services? Since Themer acts as a one-stop-shop for all those different apps (notifications from text messages, email read count, weather (which needs GPS), etc), and gives you access to different widgets to provide that information, then yes, it does need access to a lot of the services within Android. But, no one complains that Gmail needs access to that and your contacts, or that the weather app needs access to GPS info, etc. But, when they see one app have all that permission, they freak without actually researching.

Paranoia sure does run rampant in these parts!

Hi,

As mentioned above, it's for security reasons on our side. We'll soon be implementing Facebook's 'anonymous login' feature.

I haven't used Themer for few months because of poor performance with my Optimus 2x(512 mb RAM), however this thing with Google account seems to be a much bigger problem than the slow performance. I simply do not want Google servers messing around my phone, I don't use sync or Play store. Is there a chance for Themer team to reconsider this decision?

Troll thread cleaned and now will close.

Many ways to be respectful...the opposite ways kind of jump out at us moderators.
