android uses-feature overruling uses-permission?
android uses-feature (1)
Given your manifest elements above, the Market should allow the app to be visible for WiFi-only tablets as well as phones. The Ruboto IRB application ran into this shortly after the XOOM became available. Here is a blog post I wrote up after helping them fix matters.
My app does read SMS and react on incoming calls, but I still want tablet users to be able to download it from Android Market because it does a whole lot more than that.
So, if my app requests permissions for reading the phone's state and SMS, but I do tell the Android Market that my app doesn't use telephony APIs, what would the Android Market do then?
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" /> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_SMS" /> <uses-feature android:required="false" android:name="android.hardware.telephony" />
Filtered for WIFI-only tablets or not filtered, that is the question.
Have a great day Tom
