2017.3184. That's the most current version for Mac OS on the download page.

 

Ah, for some reason they were set up there, and I removed them. We don't use any of them. This was a contracted project I inherited. I'm still learning. That also seems to have removed the internet request for analytics. Neat! Thanks. This isn't going to somehow burn me down the line, right?

I have no plugins.

 

The app manifest still requests these permissions:

 

<uses-permission

android:name="com.android.vending.BILLING" />

<uses-permission
android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

<uses-permission
android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />

 

We don't use any of these. How do I get rid of them? This is an educational app for kids; it should have no requests for permission. No problem paying to disable this nonsense, but it is nonsense, and it does have to go.

 

(Also, I noticed the app do a request to Corona's statistics servers on startup. I want to disable that, too. It's unnecessary.)

Can you post your build.settings?

 

Are you doing builds using the Corona simulator or Android Studio?

And what version of Corona are you using?

Latest stable Corona downloaded today, and the builds are through the simulator. (How would I even build a Corona app in Android Studio?)

Do you mean build 2018.3194?

 

Can you post/share your build.settings file, please?

 

You can use the simulator or you can do native builds using Xcode (for iOS) or Android Studio (for Android). It's a bit of a different workflow. You have to copy the base "App" project from the Corona/Native folder and then you can open a project in Android Studio. The project has a "Corona" folder where you place your Corona simulator project files, but then you can do native builds. This is what used to be called Corona Enterprise.

We are a data-driven company and we use our analytics when trying to work out partnerships with third-parties. If everyone opted out of us collecting non-private data (daily average users, number of sessions, etc.) it would make it harder for us to set up these partnerships. We hope you want us to be successful and by allowing us to collect these metrics, it is a way you can help contribute to our success.
