Because you can take a pic using the app? Because you can create audio using the app? Turn the app off when not in use or don't use the app?

You can spin it any way you like but all it says is the app wont ask your permission should you decide to, for example, take a photo directly in app, as opposed to uploading from your Gallery. Likewise with voice. It's called integration. Users don't want to receive an on screen prompt at every button press just because a permission is required. No different from the Camera app opening right up instead of asking you if its ok for the camera to be accessed by the app first. You'll find permissions like this on virtually every Android or iOS app that requires access to those functions. Don't like it? Don't install the app.

Apparently there's a joke running in the intelligence services - at least in England - that there is no need to spy on people any more, as the people simply tell everyone what they're up to all the time anyway, via FB and Twitter
