Allows applications to access information about networks.
Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. These are broadcasts whose data is held by the system after being finished, so that clients can quickly retrieve that data without having to wait for the next broadcast.

Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time.

As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.

Allows an application to record audio.
Allows an application to send SMS messages.
This permission is no longer supported.
