    I am trying to publish to Google Play and Apple App store. This post will focus on Google Play.

    Even though I have:
     - Turned OFF Geolocation under PLUGINS (screen shot: AppBuilder_Plugins.png)
     - Removed all but the essential from ANDROID PERMISSIONS (screen shot: AppBuilder_Android.png)

    when I deploy to the store it shows Location Features and Permissions being requested (screen shot: GooglePlay.png).

    I am using AppBuilder to publish and Cordova version 3.2.

    Clarification: I am using AppBuild Publish to produce the APK but I am physically uploading it manually to Google Play.

    Hello Craig,

    You should be aware that some of the core Cordova plugins also require specific permissions, so we suggest disabling all core Cordova plugins your app does not use. Specifically the Device Orientation core Cordova plugin requires:
    • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
    • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

    Thanks Steve!

    Most of the Core Plugins match up with an API Reference here: http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.2.0/index.html
    ...however some dont like "Device Orientation".

    I would like to suggest you add to AppBuilder the "Info" icon to each option ( like you do right below in Integrated Plugins) that explains or gives a link what each plugin does and what permissions are required. 

    Currently it is very time consuming to go through each one and try to understand them all.
