New CyanogenMod lets you control the Android app permissions.

The ability to select the security settings per app was one one of the features in BB that I missed when I moved from BB to Android.

Right now the only security option you have with Android is All or nothing. CyanogenMod is changing that by providing the user the ability to select what securities are allowed not allowed.

I like the concept behind google's permissions setup, but I think the implementation has been poor. Hit the Chrome extensions area and there are tons of comments about "why does it need access to scaryblahthing?!?" when the extension author hasn't really done anything intrusive. The permission categories are just so broad.

I do like the idea of being able customize which permissions an app gets. But even though the cyanogen user base is relatively small and more advanced than android users at large, I bet there are going to be ton of annoying app support requests about why the app doesn't work (like people will read the caveat before enabling). "Well, because you disabled access to blah, that's why." I feel for app developers.

As soon as Htc unlocks the bootloader in my Aria (lost root when I upgraded to froyo), I plan on flashing Cyanogen

since this is not a Google feature but one built into Cyanogen I don't foresee to many support issues. users are the ones who are activating thus feature.

however if Google fluid implement this feature, i would expect them to implement something similar to BlackBerry.

if I recall the behavior, if a user disables a feature an app needs the app pops up asking the user to enable that security feature.
