Play store asking for permissions, but manifest doesn't require any.

Hello,

I have a question that i cant seem to find an answer to. I have made a simple app for android, and have published it on the play store. In eclipse, it says there are no required permissions... but when downloading it from the play store it has a couple permissions needing to be approved. Any help will be appreciated! I will add links to screenshots of both the manifest, and the download prompt from the play store! http://imgur.com/WyOJpIV http://imgur.com/57Vt7aq

Can you paste in the XML code from the AndroidManifest.xml tab?

Based on your manifest, it doesn't seem like your app should be triggering those permissions. If you'd like, zip up your project and email it to help@teamtreehouse.com and I can take a look to see what else might be causing this.
