Android permissions

This page describes the permissions that WarLight's Android app requests and why.

[edit] Wake Lock

While you are watching a turn play out (watching attacks and deployments happening), WarLight prevents your device from turning the screen off. To do this, the app needs to request the Wake Lock permission.

This is necessary since it's common for players to not be touching the screen while watching a turn play out, causing the device to think you're not using it.

[edit] Internet and Access Network State

The WarLight app needs to contact the internet since it's a multi-player game. Single-player games take place mostly on your device, so it doesn't need to record every move on the server when playing single-player. However, the app will still talk to the WarLight server in single-player, but only to download maps, thumbnails, and a few other minor things.
