How do I get the parameters set when installing the App to SharePoint 2013?

So, when the user has to give the app permissions (at install) to a certain list, how do I get the chosen list?

I think you need to extend this question, it is a bit unclear what you are asking :) – Robert Lindgren May 6 '13 at 11:35
Sorry for that :), what is unclear? I am trying to get the permissions that the app is given at installation. – Tom May 6 '13 at 11:39
Aren't you specifying the permissions in the AppManifest.xml? Sorry, but I fail to find the use of getting these permissions :) – Robert Lindgren May 6 '13 at 11:40
Yes I am, I specified the permissions for a list. The list is chosen at installation, and I want to know what list was chosen.. Very useful if you want to get the appropriate data from SharePoint. – Tom May 6 '13 at 11:43
Ok, I understand your objective now – Robert Lindgren May 6 '13 at 13:10
