    That's Right, Yet Another Angry Birds Thread

    My name is hookbill, and I'm an Angry Bird….

    I don't really know why everybody is so fascinated with this game but apparently there are a whole lot of you out there. I had it too, until a few moments ago. I just uninstalled it.

    Why does Angry Birds need access to my outgoing SMS? I have unlimited texting and I know Angry Birds is reputable, but it just makes me angry that they need access to all that.

    Yes, I imagine I could send an email to the devs…..but I have a right to rant on the Forum too, don't I? So don't give me any of those logical answers. I want wild theories of conspiracy and theft. Go for it.

    via Android Central:

    Update:
    You might well have noticed that the app now says it needs/has permission to access your SMS messages. The developer, Rovio Mobile, tells us on Twitter that it "Must be a mistake in some permission file. Will get it sorted on Monday."

    Common Misconception:
    Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
    Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.

    So did I, except the moment ago part. I had it uninstalled for a while. Such an overrated game. It's not even a game. It's just an example of good marketing for a redundant, lame, and mindless task.

    I believe that. I've long suspected that my Amazon Max not only has texting capabilities, I believe he has a hand gun stashed in his cage. He's the yellow head in the picture.

    I like it, but I too don't think it's the greatest game ever. I still think that it's very good though.
