Sometime in May 2015, I was discussing about something with my colleagues; and later in the evening I was surprised to see a promotional email related to what I was discussing in the morning, without even searching for it over web. And this wasn’t the first time that it had happened.
Then I checked settings of apps in my phone and found that the browser had the permission for camera and mic together. I wasn’t sure about this being the reason, but I still unchecked those permissions.
But this gave me the idea of an app that can let people control app permissions. So I decided to make a very simple and straightforward prototype.
This app allows to manage permissions for all the installed apps and even vice-versa i.e. which apps have been granted a specific permission.
Within a few days I found this feature in the Android Settings itself for good.
