Unhappy Snore or Grind App- Dodgy?

Why does this app need your location?

Obviously most of the time you are using this app you will be at home.

But if you continue using it when away on holiday or business they'll know you are not at home won't they?

Isn't this just a little bit suspicious?

This app's not for me thanks.

Just that app? I think you need to look at your other apps including the spam that your provider puts on. Most apps want your location and a goodly number don't even ask.

"Spam that your provider puts on" - do you mean pre-installed apps?

Don't think I've knowingly used one except Google.

I never even turn Location on unless absolutle necessary - very rarely.
This doesn't seem to stop any apps working except maps and weather.

The snore & grind app won't work without location - ridiculous!

Obviously nose & teeth* will be in same location as the rest of you !

* I suppose for some they can be taken out and lost somewhere else.

Do I Snore or Grind – Android Apps on Google Play

I suppose this App could be useful if you suffer from sleep apnoea, otherwise I can't see any good use for it at all.
