Why does CC ask for Android permission X?

CC needs the following permissions to be able to do its job:

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: allows CC to determine whether or not networking is enabled
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: allows CC to determine whether WiFi is on or off
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: allows CC to turn on WiFi if the user requests it
  • CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATE: allows CC to receive special network packets sent by calibre to provide its IP address and port
  • CHECK_LICENSE: allows CC to check that it is correctly licensed. Google Play paid version only
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: allows CC to install shortcuts on the home screen.
  • INTERNET: allows CC to connect to calibre over the network
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: informs CC that the device has been booted so CC can set the user-defined auto-connect alarm
  • SET_ALARM: allows CC to set a user-defined auto-connect alarm
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: required on some versions of Android to be able to write information to internal storage and any SD card
