Why is Geohopper asking for for access to my phone Contacts?

Geohopper asks for access to your iOS device Contacts for the convenience of selecting an existing email address from your Contacts when adding a new Connection.

When creating the first Connection, Geohopper will request access to your iOS device’s Contacts. A dialog box will prompt you to select to allow or to not allow access to your Contacts. You may change this setting at any time in Geohopper Settings.

Note: Geohopper does not sync, upload or share Contacts data with any other app or service.
