Google has recently come up with a significant change in its developers' policy, restricting the Android app developers from using the SMS and Call logs for their purpose. As elaborated in the policies, they can take the advantages of these data only when they showcase some core functionality of their application that has been relying on these device functionalities.
Now, while this sounds a great thing for users who have been living under the fear of their data being used without their knowledge, what is the developers' outlook to it? Are you - the Android app developers - happy with this decision? If not, what are your plans to combat the consequences of this change in policy?
