Android M App Permissions Best Practices for Developers

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Android Friday, July 17, 2015

Android M will offer a new app permissions model which streamlines the process for users to install apps. For an app running on M, the user does not have to grant any permissions when they install or upgrade the app. Instead, the app requests permissions as it needs them, and the system shows a dialog to the user asking for the permission.

It’s a totally new and different approach for Android developers that, when done well, can vastly improve the user’s app experience, and when done badly, could cripple an app.

To provide a guideline for best practices when creating permissions for M, Phunware’s Nicholas Pike has published the article “Micro-Moments Make a Difference: New Permissions in Android M” which dives into this new paradigm.

He offers suggestions on how to design and create permissions, as well as how to integrate them seamlessly into your app.
