TripTracker is a quite functional app and needs therefore some permissions. All of them are explained in the following section.

  • INTERNET: This is required to resolve adresses (Geocoding).
  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: It is nessesary to know if the app has access to the internet.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE & READ_EXTERNAL_STOREAGE: TripTracker needs to read and wirte documents, photos and other data.
  • ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION:This permission is required for position determination in the background. TripTracker needs this to record the route taken and then to calculate the departure or arrival address and the distance traveled (even if the app is not currently open [background work]).
  • BLUETOOTH & BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: This is needed for the automaic start/stop functionality
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE & CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: TripTracker supports OBDII wifi adapters

In the apps sourcecode this looks like that

Every permission has to be explizitely declared. If not the app will trhow on exception.
