I'm not impressed that the new version for Android wants access to my Google accounts...

I was surprised at this considered there's really no reason for it. As a result I found this page https://accounts.google.com/IssuedAuthSubTokens

It's still no clearer to me what a sub token is or contains and how it's used.

It's been asked on the Tapaltalk forums, but as of this morning I hadn't seen an answer about the new permission.

I saw someone reply with "it's required for push notifications" but that isn't listed as a new feature so, I call bullshit.

I've had my rant here and if I don't get a response I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

This doesn't explain why it was needed but they're removing the access requirement.
