Why do you require permissions for Android and Kindle Fire devices?
The BBC iPlayer Radio app requires the following permissions for Android and Kindle Fire devices:
ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION - Device location is used to find the nearest local radio station.
ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - Used to determine whether the device is connected to Wifi. This is used to determine audio quality and control downloads.
INTERNET - Required for obtaining programme information, and for playing live and on-demand radio.
READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Required to migrate podcasts downloaded using an older version of the app, so they still work with the latest version.
WAKE_LOCK - Used to keep the device awake while playing audio.
WIFI_LOCK - Used to keep the device's Wifi radio turned on while the application is streaming audio. This will not stop Wifi being turned off from setting, or by entering Airplane mode.
