DescriptionPermission Viewer retrieves the permissions granted to the installed apps, and presents them in a list, which the app has the greatest amount of "critical permission" stays at the top.
The permissions will be categorized into 4 groups - Malicious, Critical, Normal and Others, indicated by shapes or colors respectively.
Malicious: Red, Round Shape
Critical: Orange, Round Shape
