miniatures for mobiles - privacy policy

Last updated: Feb.23, 2018


radio aporee is a platform for sound art and experimental radio. We provide the app radio aporee – miniatures (for mobiles) both for Android- and IOS-based devices, free of charge for our users. The app enables access to sound art works in public space, created by artists, cultural organizations and individuals.

Information Collection And Use:

We do not collect, store, track or analyze any personal data of our users. Users of the app don't need to log in or provide any kind of personal information.

App permissions:

In order for the app to function properly, some permissions need to be granted on the user's device. Below you find the required permissions and why they are necessary. Please note: depending on the device and platform used, the requested permissions can vary.


Access to precise location is needed because the app finds and plays sounds close to the user's position in public space. Since distances can be 10 meters and less, GPS is required.

Phone, Device ID & call information

The app doesn't access any identity settings/data of the phone, but must read the phone's state, e.g. for suspending the app when a call arrives, or to detect when the phone goes in stand-by mode.


The app provides a local cache for sound files and related data. These files are stored on the phone's external storage, usually the SD-card. This is very helpful for the app's performance and it saves costs, since usually a user synchronizes a sound piece upfront, within a WIFI network, eliminating the need to download sounds over expensive mobile networks.


The app plays sound files, but does not record any audio. However, this permission is requested by the mediaplayer code used for audio playback and cannot be disabled individually. This may change in a future update.

Wi-Fi connection information, Other

The app needs full network connection in order to load sound files to its local USB storage. Different types of network connections need to be distinguished, e.g. to warn users when they are within an expensive mobile network, or if they are offline. Vibration is used for notification, i.e. when the user approaches a nearby sound.
