Re: A bug in the iOS version

If the app uses UIImagePickerController then the app asks the OS to ask the user to choose a photo, and if one is chosen then the app is given access to that one photo.

This is different from the app going through the gallery and opening as many photos as it likes with possibly no warning given to the user, which is what the photos permission covers.
