Check your permissions



Fiat Avenue.

* I'm not installing the Abe App because of this:

This application has access to the following:
Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

Specifically, that first sentence. I can't think of any good reason why this kind of app needs to have that kind of permission. (Always check permissions before installing any app.)
