    I am trying to find a good rss/pod catcher app for my Dinc. I came across one called "Beyondpod Podcast Manager." When I go to download the app it says that it wants access to the following:

    System tools
    Network communication
    Phone Calls
    Storage
    Your accounts

    The one that gets me concerned is gaining access to "your accounts." It goes on to further say that it wants to use the authentication credentials of an account and manage the accounts list. What does that mean? Is the app accessing passwords to any accounts I view on my phone or does it only access the accounts (or different feeds) that I subscribe to?

    Thanks,
    Logan

    I believe it is talking about RSS accounts. Like Google's Feed Reader, that way things stay in sync.

    Well, *I* think it means it will have access to all the google accounts on your phone. Which is why you should only accept this level from Googles own apps
