After the first couple of app installs, I kind of lost interest with the huge list of requested permissions that go with every app. Since you can't selectively toggle the individual items to deny the app access (only to deny the app install completely) the list is kind of useless anyway.

If you trust the app, you install it, otherwise you don't install it. It's not like you aren't going to install the "Facebook" app if you don't fully agree with one of the bullet items on the permission list.
