Why do Apps need access to my cell's camera and contacts?? Unless it's for a video chat, it's non of their &$&#@-%& business.

Are there any apps out there or methods to block this? I welcome any suggestions. Elliot

Your privacy concerns are understandable.  For an app that requests access to your camera and contacts, you should contact the developers so they can explain why they need that access for the application.  You can find their contact information at the bottom of the app description in the app store.
