Why does News Booth need your location to access your photos? Any app that want to access the photos on an iOS device, need permission to access the location of the device, as well. This is because all photos on an iPhone, iPad or iPod includes information on when and where the photo was taken. If the user denies the app this information, the app won’t be able to access the photos either.
This is why you will receive a message saying that you need to turn on location services for the News Booth app when trying to select a photo from your gallery, if location services for some reason is off.
News Booth does NOT in any way use this location information, we only require it so that you will be able to select photos in the app. Requiring location services is unfortunately not something we can avoid, if we wish to offer this functionality, as it is built into the iOS operating system.
