    App Access

    Should I worry about what Apps are needing access to when chosing to install? Like Laucher Pro, Read gmail and sms or mms msg, full internet access, browser history and book mark and calendar data, storage, services that cost you money??, system tools. Just seems odd, that is has access to all of that, but I see alot of people on here rave about the app and use it. So is there malicious stuff that can be done from a program having access like that, does the maker get info back on stuff from my phone?

    nope. system tools has to access all that info bc it does the battery info (what services are running)

    ive only seen one report of a malicious app (music player that was sending premium rate texts (still, it was in Russia mostly)) so i think youre ok

    Well like it so far, just one thing though my memory available jumped from usually around 100mb or so to 250mb. Not that I am complaining just wondering does it handle things that much better than stock home launcher?
