    When I submit an game to Google Play it reports the following permissions. My game is a very simple one.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.baltorotech.majzig

    Why does it need all of the following permissions?
    • android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
    • android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE
    • android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE
    • android.permission.INTERNET
    • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
    • android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE
    • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

    Thanks for the reply.

    My game displays ads from Admob and Chartboost. Other than that it does not have any need to connect with internet or where the person is located, to me it does not matter (I actually dont know the impact of it) whether the app is installed in external SD or internal, or what is the device's IMEI or phone number. With this background, which of the lines can I delete in the Android code before compiling the apk. By the way, I do intend to try offering sharing button once I figure out how to do that.
