Apps that wanst to have access to my camera and mic anytime ????
Hi everyone, I'm a Newbie to the Android side. I have used the Itouch and thought this would be a great starter tablet for the $$. The A100 that is.
For those of you who are familiar with the Apps... I went to download a CNN app so I can read news, easy enough. Right before I am ready to hit download, it confirms all the permissions that this app will have access to. One that got me wondering is under HARDWARE CONTROLS: "Allows app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This allows the app at any time to collect images the camera is seeing" Well, does this mean that while running the CNN app that they can take pics/vids of what ever my camera is pointed at ??? and if so, do they mean front camera or back camera ??? This is no doubt a dumb question but I can't be the only one who has asked... Please help

I think because you can send photos or videos directly from the camera with cnn app.
