I'm building a cross-platform application with Xamarin.Forms.
For the content I use an async call to a API which returns JSON.
So I need the INTERNET permission.
Example of the code that contacts the API:
var data = await wc.GetStringAsync("http://website.for.content/content-api/Category/?format=json");
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
Internet access is a normal permission and thus only needs to be defined in the application's manifest for installation purposes and is auto-granted at runtime.
Normal permissions cover areas where your app needs to access data or resources outside the app's sandbox, but where there's very little risk to the user's privacy or the operation of other apps. For example, permission to set the time zone is a normal permission. If an app declares that it needs a normal permission, the system automatically grants the permission to the app
