New App Permissions Explained

As you will notice, the Play Store will ask you to approve the update as it requires a new additional permission:

Gamesome asks you the permission to your accounts in order to choose one of your Gmail addresses that will be used to send crash reports, this operation from now on will be automatic and silent: many users try the app, have a crash and instead of reporting a bug give a 1 star review without giving any feedback, this hopefully will help identifying problems more quickly.

If you don’t want to use your email address you can choose to send anonymous reports, the consequence is that I won’t be able to answer you back if necessary.

Gamesome needs this new permission in order to create and display a list of the existing Gmail accounts on your device, nothing more!


Gamesome Future Updates

Since I’ll soon start my CS MSc thesis, the time to work on Gamesome will lack. During these months I’ll keep development active just for minor updates/fixes and I’ll probably improve the website, but I’ll talk about this in a blog post at the proper time 🙂
