Last year, a thoughtful friend gifted me a gimbal for my phone. A gimbal is a special handle with a gyroscopic motor that takes your mobile filming to the next…you know what, it’s not important. Here’s what upset me: After I downloaded the companion app that helps control it for my phone, the app wanted permission to make and receive phone calls. Phone calls—for a camera handle! Then it wanted access to my contact list, and asked if it could have full access to my device data storage.
