    What's with the new permission required? You want to know my phone number and calls and stuff? Nope. It's a news app. You don't get to know my personal details.

    Why does EWN suddenly require access to my call info? No thanks. Far too invasive, nosy and downright annoying. Stick your app where the sun don't shine. Goodbye!

    One sided and bad quality reporting.
