Is there a way to remove some permissions of already compiled apps?

There are so many apps in the market and I don't trust all of them. Is
there a way to remove some permissions of the already compiled apk?
It doesn't matter if I cannot sign it anymore with the original
certificate of the developer.

And is there also a way to add an error-handler into the .apk-file, so
that the errors of the requested permissions will also be supressed?

Greetings, Martin

Sure it does.


If you do not want the application on your device, do not install it.

1. Using html in WebView to build UI

Hi all,
I've been building my app using the standard xml and Java Android
layout libraries. I don't like the set up very much; and I would
prefer to build the ui in html. I've been testing the speed of the
WebView; and it seems that it is quite fast at rendering. Does anyone
know if Google has ever said anything on the subject of building the
ui in html and rendering it in a WebView? I know it's perfectly legal
to render the UI in the WebView; but am I going to run into some
problem in the future?
