very nice. but do i understand it right: it does not allow me to customize permissions for specific apps, does it? e.g. to let the an app use my camera and mic but not location and contacts. i can still just either accept all permissions for an app or not install it at all, right?

tyvm!!

Correct. This module isn't for restricting permissions.

Uploaded 1.0.5. Changes:
  • Don't capitalize unknown permissions (e.g. "com.package.permission" should not be shown as "Com.package.permission").
  • Add Polish translation (by veteran29).

Love this module, soooooo useful, my deep thanks to you.

I'm assuming that the new Play Store has changed things again and stopped things working properly.

Previously I have been blocking/no updating Google+ (which introduced "control Near Field Communication") as it coincided with the new interface which I hate (convenient). Today I did an Update All and it did not block this or put up the Accept/Skip screen as before, requiring me to cancel the download before it installed

In addition, YouTube 5.7.41 added two new permissions in the Other category - "toggle sync on and off" and "read sync settings" and these were also not picked up, so did not offer the Accept/Skip screen either.

Some "com." permissions still capitalized I will note that permissions.

Is this only happening with the "Update All" dialog?

Any examples (of apps for which this happens, not permissions)?

Difficult to say now unfortunately since YouTube has since been updated again and removed the new permissions added to the Other category. The module seems to be behaving normally again with Google+ again too, makes me think that one must have been a glitch, I've restarted my devices since.

Thanks again.
