First off, this app requires root access. It won't work if your devices isn't rooted.
Permissions Denied makes a list of your installed apps (as well as system apps) in your device. From that list you can see at a glance, under the app name, the amount of active and disable permissions. What's more, if you tap on the app, you it will show in detail each permission and a brief description. From there, with just a tap, you can enable/disable the permission. The changes will be applied after reboot.
Bear in mind that most of the apps need those permissions to work properly and if you reject them it will make it not work. However, there are some apps that ask for permissions that shouldn't be required for its correct performance: for example, access to send/read SMS for a Tetris Game. The purpose of this app is controlling this kind of permissions.
What's different in this app is that you can restore all permissions, disable one permission for all the apps at the same time: for example, access to read/compose SMS, and backup permissions profile. You can do all of this from Advanced Options.
It should be said that, although the app is quite simple and easy of use, the layout is too sober (it reminds developer dashboards).
Permissions Denied has been developed by Stephen (Stericson), a well-known developer focused on apps for rooted devices.
