stop asking for access to my contacts!
Google, you're supposed to not be evil. But demanding access to all my contacts before letting me use the app is evil. Stop it.
And making me add an email address to make a comment is just an asshole move, which is what the contact requirement is, incidentally.
Wazites - You've heard that your audience don't want to allow you access to their contact just to use the app. I wholeheartedly agree, and, upon getting a new phone, just deleted your app because of that.
The new way for you to look at this, too, is the inconvenience it causes those willing to share those contacts. When I allowed this on my old phone, all contacts were duplicated. Annoying!

Don't require access to contact list to use.

You want access to my contact list, REALLY? You are obviously a privacy nightmare waiting to happen.
I don't need you that badly!
