Then why are there so many permissions? Well, most are required for the app drawer and home screen controls. The others are necessary for our AdNetwork's SDK and are explained in more detail here - http://www.startapp.com/permissions/. All permissions added are completely harmless and at no point do we collect or store any personal information! Our user's privacy is a top priority, but please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
This app will provide a few useful shortcuts on your device in the form of a search bookmark link and home screen icon. This gives us a few cents each time the app is downloaded for the first time and will help us out a lot in developing more apps. If you do not want to use these new tools, you can simply ignore or delete them by dragging the icon to the trashcan and no harm is done (our app remains the same, no need to uninstall it). Thank you!
If you have any questions or comments, please visit our website or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Note to Dedicated Users and Fans:
To those of you that have been supporting Syndicate Apps and using our launchers and themes for the last year, you may have noticed that some of them haven’t been updated in a couple months. We appreciate your dedication and feedback more than can be expressed in writing and are extremely sorry for the wait, but this is only because we have spent the last 6 months straight developing a new launcher that will be the most advanced and customizable app on the market when we are ready to launch. The apps we have released in the meantime are to make sure individual features and add-ons work before integrating them into the beta project (and only specific styles for those features at that). So don’t despair because the real thing will be out soon and completely change the way you look at your phone or tablet. Stay tuned and check our site for updates!
