1.0 out of 5 stars bad permissions, February 15, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Evernote - stay organized. (App)
Honestly I love the service. I think its great. But the direction that you are taking with these permissions is very worrying. I cant see a reason for half these perm's, much less my contacts or where I live. There is no acceptable reason for you to have this. I wont be using this product any more until this is resolved.

I agree. Hopefully developers will begin to take note that many more people would use their apps if the permissions weren't so unreasonable. I'd love to have this app--but it's not worth the risk.

Try reading the terms and conditions, your worries are needless in my opinion

Hope this helps:

Contact Data: This is used to allow the Android application to access your contact list in order to autocomplete email addresses when you email a note.

Sensitive Log Data: This is used to help improve the product if you encounter a problem. For example, if the application crashes, you can select "Send logs" from the "Settings" screen. This will attach a log file to an email message. You can always review the contents before sending them to Evernote Support.

Hardware Identity: Some hardware partners offer Evernote Premium upgrade promotions. Evernote looks up your device's hardware identifier (IMEI or SIM number) and, if your device is eligible, sends that information to Evernote.

Known Accounts: This is used to ease Evernote account creation by pre-filling the email address field on the registration form. Evernote will only store your email address once and submit it as part of the registration process.

Accounts: Evernote account details are sent to and read from your Android Account manager so you can manage the account easily. With your permission, other applications may also connect to your Evernote account.

Sync Settings: Evernote allows user to control Evernote sync settings from Android's Account manager.

Calendar Events: This information is used to automatically provide note titles based on calendar events (as well as location data).

Location Services: Location Services are used to determine the device's current location so that it can be attached to new notes. It is also used when plotting one or more notes in the map view and is used to provide additional information for automatic note titles.

Camera: The first time a user starts to record a photo note, he/she will be prompted to allow Evernote access to the device's camera application. This permission is stored to allow Evernote to capture photos from this device without prompting in the future.

Steve M, I fully agree. I totoally uninstalled it. I would have kept it, if the app requested access and let me control it.
