By receiving updates via the Google Play Store, your existing phone stays up to date with the latest functionality, regardless of Android version.

* Control vibrator:
Only 1 application can have control at a time. If an application wants to take control of the ANT Interface from another application, the ANT Radio Service will create a notification so you can choose to allow control to be transferred. Default vibrate/beep/flash LED settings will be used, so it may want to vibrate your phone at this point.
* Full Internet access:
The ANT Radio Service can be installed on the Android Emulator and utilizes an ANT USB Stick on a Windows PC when used in conjunction with the ANT Android Emulator Tools. To do this it requires the INTERNET permission.
* Modify global system settings:
This allows initialization of whether ANT should be turned off or kept on when Airplane mode is entered.
