com.twitter.android.permission.RESTRICTED: RESTRICTED com.twitter.android.permission.AUTH_APP: AUTH_APP android.permission.INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets. android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks. android.permission.VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator. android.permission.READ_PROFILE: READ_PROFILE android.permission.READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data. android.permission.RECEIVE_SMS: Allows an application to receive SMS messages. android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service. android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS: The API documentation is not that clear about this permission. But according to Bryans answer, an app can only delete/modify an account it created itself. Of course it can create any new account, and manage that. android.permission.AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS: An app using this permission usually provides an interface to deal with a certain account type (which is not known by the pre-installed Android system), such as Dropbox. As shipped, Android does not know how to login to Dropbox and how to deal with a Dropbox account – so the Dropbox app provides the mechanism. Additionally, an 'account authenticator' might restrict the actions an app can perform with the account (so it would e.g. be possible to administrate this via some web interface offered by the service). android.permission.READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings. android.permission.WRITE_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to write the sync settings. android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS: This app may use the 'credentials' to log into an account. In most cases, 'credentials' just means the corresponding authenticator creates a fitting token and hands that over (though, how to deal with that is left to the authenticator). When using an account for the first time, the Account Manager should make sure the user is asked whether he permits this android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. android.permission.WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming. android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage. com.twitter.android.permission.READ_DATA: READ_DATA com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES: READ_GSERVICES com.android.launcher.permission.INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher. android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state. android.permission.CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device. android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio. com.sonyericsson.home.permission.BROADCAST_BADGE: BROADCAST_BADGE com.sonymobile.home.permission.PROVIDER_INSERT_BADGE: PROVIDER_INSERT_BADGE android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks. android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. com.google.android.c2dm.permission.RECEIVE: RECEIVE com.twitter.android.permission.C2D_MESSAGE: C2D_MESSAGE android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage. android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting.
