Needed to monitor the network state. AndroIRC needs to know when you switch from 3G to WiFi, when 3G connection is lost, etc.
Eh, this is an IRC app, internet access is needed ;)
Allow AndroIRC to vibrate on notifications.
This permission is needed to store log files on the SD card.
You may wondering “Why on earth on IRC application would need such a permission?”. This permission is only needed for the new feature “Share my location” in AndroIRC 3.1+. This feature shares your location with the active channel, so AndroIRC needs to be able to query this current location. We can assure you AndroIRC does not use this informations for anything else.
