Explaining to End-Users Intel XDX Required Permissions

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

For people who have used Intel XDX to compile their app's .apk(s) and for people who are familiar with Intel XDX. Yes, I posted this question on their forums and the silence speaks volumes.

Apparently, Intel XDX is, according to the tutorials I read about publishing games, a method to compile the .apk from Construct 2 files.

It however requires certain irremovable permissions.


The app that I am helping to develop does not require an internet connection. When I installed the .apk from Intel XDX, i see three permissions.

I know that this are mandatory permissions: https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/fa ... ermissions

How do I explain to the end-users these required permissions? If they wonder or ask why they are required? May I link Intel XDX supports email address? Can i add that link here? https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/fa ... ermissions in the store page?

These Permissions:

* Full Network Access
* View Network Connections
*View Wi-fi Connections. "

How can I explain these to the end-users? this app does not require any internet or data connection whatsoever. Since Intel XDX mandates it, how can I explain to the users what they are and why they are needed? Or should I just, in the store page, include a link to the FAQ and Intel's corporate HQ email address? Since they're the ones who require those three permissions, they can explain it.
