What permissions does Yarrly use on my phone and why?

When you install Yarrly, it asks for the following permissions on install from your Android phone. Here we explain the reason for each one.

read phone status and identity
We use features of the phone you use to identify Yarrlys you create so you can retrieve remixes and replies to them. We don't store your phone number, contacts, personal details or anything else.

modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
We store your created Yarrlys and Yarrly bits in your gallery!
