    thanks for the good work, I read your news daily and often find useful articles. I just got a phone and saw your windows phone app and thought I give it a go. But … you can’t be seriours about the requirements! Why would you need access to all my private details???

      Hi Christoph. Thanks for raising this concern. Actually, the app is just a Windows Phone App Studio app that retrieves feed data from my site. I did not remove any of the ‘capabilities’ listed by default in the configuration as I should have before submitting the app to the store. I will be releasing an update soon which will be a Universal App for both WinPhone and Win8.1. I will make sure to remove those items from the config which to not apply to my app. The app does not need or use any private user details.
