@cheesus: providing cloud integrations via separate plugins has the advantage to keep the required permissions of F-Stop at a minimum. So, users do not have to trust the developers of F-Stop to not stealing data, they just can SEE, there is not even a technical possibility to do this… if the original F-Stop e.g. does not use cloud connections or network access but only plugins do this. And if I do not use the plugins, I explicitly know, my data is save.
BTW: F-Stop at the moment in fact HAS access to the SD card and full network access… so I cannot control what it probably is doing with my data…. it could send it to everywhere in the internet.
