    I was wondering why some games want access to so many functions. As an example, I was looking at Zombie Derby and it wants access to:

    phone identity, owner identity, location services, music library, photos library, media playback, data services, phone dialer, movement and directional sensor, web browser component.

    Any idea what it needs all that for? Other than movement and directional sensor of course.

    Until I know otherwise, I would guess the app is making money on the side collecting information about you and reporting home.

    I will blame this to advertisement services.

    That was what I was thinking, especially as it's "free".
