Hi just made an app with my friend ventrix.
PermissionDog lists all the applications you have installed and checks out what permissions each app is using.
Based on these permissions it sets how dangerous the application can be.
PermissionDog also supports realtime protection. Every time you launch an application
a notification pops up and shows how many permissions the app is using
and how dangerous that application is. (in case you missed reading the permissions when you downloaded the app).
You can exclude any app from Real Time Protection (RTP) or disable the RTP service.
It's like a really lightweight antivirus.

Please note that the application is in Beta stage.Is fully functional and hopefully bug free but needs some tweeks.
Serius updates will come to the next few days!

Looks interesting. Any plans to add the ability to disable/block permissions?

We are looking to make the app as good as it gets. If changing permissions to other apps is doable without rooted phone consider it done.

Great. I think I will give it a try.


UPDATE: Just installed....very nice! I like how you can sort apps by permission danger. Additionally, I like how clicking on a secific permission will list all apps utilizing that particular permission. Of all apps installed I have two with the red dannnger. I was glad the two were the only apps with that permission level but now am assured that no others have it..

This app makes it easy to do quick analysis.

Love the idea of this app as soon as I saw it pop-up on my XDA Twitter feed.

Installed on my HTC Thunderbolt with the latest ROM (no root) but it was hanging and giving me a Force Close/Wait. I do have a lot of apps installed so I thought this might be an issue.

Rebooted my Thunderbolt and it finally loaded okay. Selected Sort by danger and getting another Force Close/Wait. Selected Wait and it finally sorted.

I really like the app and look forward to some tweaks that might resolve some of the delays for us "app hounds".

Thank you for the post. We are aware of that issue and working on it. The problem is fetching application icons is too expensive some times. We working on making the "fetching" async. Plz wait for an update in the next few days

Awesome! I'll keep watching and will continue to provide feedback.

As a suggestion, is it possible/practical to add the standard rotating "clock" so a user will know it is working in the background?

Can't thank you guys enough for this app. Hope you also eventually have a "paid" version so those of us who want to support you and remove the ads can do so.
