If these kinds of permissions didn't exist you'd never be able to take photos, record voice or do almost anything really in the way of messaging or talking with your friends using the app. These kinds of permissions are just par for the course.

I really love this project but the typography and UI could really be re-worked.
Grats on the refresh!
