    Well, Well, Well. This is a great app, but! When I looked at the setting to set up the OneDrive integration, I was appalled. Why in the world would I give this app or any app for that matter, permission to : Access my name, gender, display picture, contacts, and friends. 2: Access your info anytime 3: Access and edit your OneDrive? Sure it says that I can change these settings anytime in the account settings, but PLEASE! I like the app, too bad it is just so obtrusive. DELETE
