App permissions and differences with Facebook app.

Android app permissions

Fast:
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    This is the main permission just to access to internet.
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
    This is a permission to get your gps position. It's triggered only when you do a checking, I never check the position or have any analytic about where you are.
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>
    For the vibration of the chat
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
    I use it to check if your phone is connected or not
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    This is used only to store the images and for data caching to save bandwidth.
  • <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
    This one is triggered only when you open the camera view and take a photo.

Facebook app:
This app has access to these permissions:
  • Your accounts
  • find accounts on the device
  • create accounts and set passwords
  • add or remove accounts
  • Your location
  • precise location (GPS and network-based)
  • approximate location (network-based)
  • Your messages
  • read your text messages (SMS or MMS)
  • Network communication
  • view network connections
  • receive data from Internet
  • full network access
  • change network connectivity
  • download files without notification
  • view Wi-Fi connections
  • connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
  • Your personal information
  • read calendar events plus confidential information
  • add or modify calendar events and send email to guests without owners' knowledge
  • read your own contact card
  • Phone calls
  • directly call phone numbers
  • read phone status and identity
  • Storage
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • System tools
  • install shortcuts
  • test access to protected storage
  • send sticky broadcast
  • read battery statistics
  • Your applications information
  • run at startup
  • retrieve running apps
  • reorder running apps
  • Camera
  • take pictures and videos
  • Other Application UI
  • draw over other apps
  • Microphone

Crazy. Just crazy.



Facebook permissions.
Fast:
Fast asks for a lot of permissions because there is no way to access to your data or write a new object without them. The good thing is that the app does what you want to do and there is no background process that spies or catch your information. There is no analytic or hidden services. At the first installation the app asks if you want to post a status with information about Fast, but you can choose if you want this or not.
This is the list of permissions that Fast can ask you (all are optional, if you need a feature you accept, otherwise you can decide to decline):
FastPermissions.PNG


So, if you need a client that is triggered only by your actions, Fast it's your choice. The app doesn't have any control on your sms, contacts, phone data and status. It's not connected to any spying web services and there are no logs or personal information that are sent to me. I have no idea who is using Fast, what the user is doing. I just have Facebook data about active monthly user, geographical stats (only countries percentage), language and stats about how many api calls are made + api errors.

Facebook App:
The thing with official app is that you can't decide what permissions you can give to it, because it's official and it can do everything. If you loose your phone and you don't have the proper security level, everyone can do everything on your FB account with the Fb app.
Moreover, you don't know what kind of analytic, hidden services and hidden processes are on the app. You have to give so many android permissions that you literally give the app a full control of your phone.

I know that I am no one, and it's hard to trust, but Fast is here from almost 2 years and people trust my app. You can check the ratings and all the discussion here, I am always open to change the app, follow feedback and fix everything. My motto is to be transparent and always open to accept critics and new ideas.
If someone needs more info, feel free to write here!!

Love the Holo theme, but what about data privacy please ? :)

Well,
login is trough a webview directly connected with Facebook (fb dialog), so no data is passed trough the app. The are no analytics such as google, flurry, socialize, etc etc. So the only data I receive is from the developer dashboard of Facebook.

So, all the connections are trough facebook open graph or the xmpp facebook server (using SASL, no md5 with user and password in clear :) )

Talking about privacy, I will introduce the possibility to use the privacy settings for the sharing of content and update status.


Thank u

bensalem, pa
+1 on the proper background service. I stopped using the official since most versions would always run no matter the settings which resulted being a battery killer. if you can configure it to cache to the background so it's not running consistently you may just be on the road to compete against friendcaster

sent from my ICS flavored HTC Vigorous Vigor. If I helped please use the "thanks" option!

    Hey Guys!
    I am sorry that I have not written in these days. I will reply to all the posts!
    Anyway I had a terrible flu, but in the meanwhile I worked on Fast (slowly but I've worked on it xD ). The good news is that facebook has released a new SDK that is much better than the older one. So I am in the middle of a really big transition from old SDK to the new one.
    After this I will continue the work on push notifications.
    A new design will be also introduced, I saved some money to pay a really good designer and we will start soon to restyle the app.

    Thank you for the support!

    Hi Guys.
    I've decided to take a risk and re-enable Fast in the next days. It will be a version without like-comments icons, without status tag and other small tricks in order to be in some ways more in compliance with their stupid policy.
    In the meanwhile I will build the new app, Fast 2.
