Important Update: In response to the permissions model change in Android M we’ve made some changes in how the Applause SDK UI is displayed in version 3.3.0 and this permission is no longer required – that’s good right?!
The release of Android 5.1 brought with it some important changes. In terms of the Applause Android SDK it means we had to update the SDK and developers will have to upgrade to the latest version of Android SDK or else their app will crash on startup on Android 5.1 devices.
On pre Android 5.1 we were able to show any dialog ui at any time for any app. Starting from 5.1 the bug the application needs to have following permission in AndroidManifest
This is also included in step 3 of the Android SDK Integration Guide
