Permissions
-----------
You may notice that when you install the app it asks you for permission to access your phone's network communication, phone calls, and system tools.

These are standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The 3 permissions the BBC Media Player app asks to use are:

• Network Communication - full internet access.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with access to the internet so it can play programmes.

• Phone Calls - read phone state and identity.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with phone communication status and notifies the application if the phone rings or a phone call is in progress. We only use this permission to ensure that the BBC Media Player pauses if you receive a phone call and temporarily reduces its audio when you receive a txt message while watching a programme. The BBC Media Player app does not access or store any personal information, phone numbers or IMEI numbers.

• System tools - preventing phone from sleeping, retrieve running applications.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with the ability to prevent the phone going to sleep when you are watching a programme.

    No idea what's wrong with other reviewers here. Iplayer for TV, radio app for radio. Simples! Chromecast support is great too, can't wait to see it arrive on the radio app as well. All in all I can't see how you could want more. App permissions are fair a
