why device access needs full network access for android app?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

hi

i have made a crosswalk based android app and when i install this on my mobile it says

it will get access to :

full network access
view network connections
view Wi-Fi Connections


My app is a small game it does not require any internet connection. But according to tutorial https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/809/how-to-export-to-android-with-crosswalk

Device should always bhe enabled.

Why should i give network access? If i do not allow device access then wouldn't my app work?

from what ive experienced it will still work. best way to find out is testing it yourself as it would only take a minute with how fast you can make a build

I have tested this and it seems like cordova does not work without having these permission access. I just read on https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/532663 , so it is either a kind of bug or maybe a way to communication by coordova library. So even if i remove "device" , the app is still asking for network permisson
