On October 8, 2018, Google decided to update their policies related to SMS and Call Log permissions.
Sadly, this decision impact our apps and we are forced to take down some features...

We are really sorry and hope you understand that unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it.

Also, we would appreciate if you could refrain from posting bad reviews related to this problem, bad ratings will not be helpful at all.
What you can do is tell Google that their decision is affecting you. To do so, you can post here : https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/117486314

Few comments

Following this decision, some users have protested to Google, especially users of automation apps.

Some exceptions have been added by Google, which are distributed by filling out a form and allowed on a case by case in a completely arbitrary way. The exception category "Task Automation" being particularly adapted to our case, we filled the forms and contacted the Google Policy team. But so far, we have had only refusals of our different requests for exceptions ... Well thank you Google !!!

On our side, we always think about our community first, this is why we recently released a standalone version of NFC Tools / NFC Tasks on our website.
