As of 1/18/2016 (at least in Clevland)
the Android Uber Driver App now REQUIRES access to your device SMS info.

You can't use the app until you agree to the permission request.
This could be nothing - or it could be outrageous
since it allows Uber access to your complete sms/mms messaging log and messages.

Totally agree.
Still, everyone needs to be aware of what permissions they are granting the Uber and Lyft apps.
(and if you don't think that it is beyond Uber to use permissions in any way they choose, then you don't know much about how Uber operates)
