Are there any guidelines for handling this?
At the moment I'm aiming to keep as much of the app functional as possible, and display a toast with button in two circumstances:
1) On app load if the permission has been denied.
2) At the moment(s) the app requires the denied/revoked permission.
"The XXXX app requires the requested permissions in order to YYYY. Please enable the requested permissions in the System Settings." / "OK"

Not that I've read.
Of the apps that I've seen handle this, some are silent (i.e. they remove any menu options, buttons, etc.), some put up messages and explain how to enable, some refuse to start the app and others just crash.
I think you need to choose the best option (not the 4th one obviously) depending on what the permission is.
For example if it is just to enable 'BBM Invite to Download' then probably just hide the option, as there is no point hassling a user over something really only beneficial to you, however if it's an essential part of your app then a message on how to enable would be the best course of action.
