ok here is my permissions app and the facebook permissions ive blocked. it's called permissions pro and has been removed from the official app store..
but can still be found..
coarse location is disabled because i only want facebook accessing my location via gps(fine location) and not over the network. i have my reasons.
blocked 'record audio path' i have no need to record audio with facebook
my firewall blocks the app on all levels and is removed from trusted.. meaning it would give me a notification if the app tries to use anything
facebook.. also removed from trusted
blocked contacts access.. the ppl i want on my facebook i know how to find them, but thanks for the offer facebook.. but no thanks
once ive locked down all my apps.. i lock the permissions file with this lovely feature and reboot. this is what resulted in a 100mb drop in ram usage
by the facebook app alone which was previously crossing 100mb. it now uses 27mb or thereabouts.
as mentioned before.. facebook works fine. im yet to find a feature related to the camera for the app that doesnt work.
also notice the alternative facebook app i have installed only requires 6 permissions to run.. and installs with a wopping 100kb disk usage if i
WHAT exactly does facebook's official app require 14+ megabytes to install for?? i have all the same features on the alternative app which i use for a
seperate account. facebook's official app only has my 'special' account.
in fact.. the smaller app works better because it has the added advantage of being able to post links, that actually manifest as links on your wall
with image preview.. as opposed to facebook's official app.. which posts a halfdead link in near plain text.
14+ mb for the facebook app? seriously? to do what? please.. enlighten me!
