New Android device users, downloading the FORMED app for the first time, will be requested to allow the app to access the user phone. The user should select 'Allow' for this request.
The need to allow phone access for the android FORMED app is related to the android operating system itself. Acceptance of this feature allows the user, watching a video with an incoming call, to automatically pause the video during the inbound call and then continue the video once the call is completed or the user declines to accept the call. The android app will resume playing the video from the exact location in the programming with no action required on the user's part. This fluid interaction to resume from the point of video departure is only enabled if the user allows the FORMED android app to have phone access at the time of install.
Additionally, it is recommended that Android device users allow the FORMED Android app to access your media storage if they intend on taking advantage of Offline Playback.
