Hi

I only have the following permissions set in Appery Android Permissions.

ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION
CAMERA
WAKE_LOCK

However the following permissions are granted by Google Play. Why? I do not want ....

Android Permissions not Working

Hello Deon,

Please check your enabled Cordova plugins, they ask for corresponding permissions too.

Thanks Evgene

I am not sure how disabling certain plugins will then affect the App functionality.

Basically I am using the BarCode Scanner service. I am using push messaging based on your documentation for setting it up. Does this use a Cordova Plugin? If so I presume it is PushPlugin? Is that correct?

Does that mean I can disable all other Cordova Plugins?

Does the Barcode Scanner not require the camera settings? If I disable Camera will the BarCode Scanner still work?

Are any of these services dependent on each other or can I go ahead and disable everyone barring the barcode scanner and Pushplugin?

Can you also let me know what plugins are essential because removing most plugins that I do not require, crashed the App. I can run the app now.

Thanks.

Hello Deon,

Almost all Cordova plugins are independent, so you can remove all of them from your app

Ok cool. Thank you. I have tried it and it works.
I see there are two versions of the cordova pushplugin.

To receive push messages does either of them need to be activated if I am using the standard method as descibed by appery to setup and use push messages?

Thank you

If you use an application, which was updated from the libraries version 2.x - please use Push Plugin 1.3.0

If your app was build with Libraries version 3.x - please use Push Plugin 1.4.5
