Color Tiger has also released App Ops. App Ops is a system settings app which allows the user to revoke permissions on a per-app basis on the phone or tablet. This app was included by default on Android 4.3 but hidden, and then completely made unaccessible in Android 4.4. The app has been recompiled, and a few improvements like a search button (with more to come later) have been added.
