I was about to buy the Photoshop Touch app for my phone when I noticed this clause under permissions:
"This application has access to the following: 1. Hardware controls: take pictures and videos. Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation."
Is there a way to use the app without giving this permission? What on earth is this kind of function used for??
it's for the camera fill feature, it allows you to use the camera to add a background to an image.
the camera is only used if you specifically choose to use this feature.
you can get a quick preview of this feature at 0:42 in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yg_MpgMk7kI
the only way to revoke specific permissions is with certain custom roms, or using xposed app settings(only available for a few devices)
