    CyanogenMod's Koush Moving Forward with App Store for Banned Apps Idea


    Previously we shared a story detailing a great idea from "Koush" of the CyanogenMod team to create an app store that is geared primarily toward developers. We have interesting news regarding that story. Kousik Dutta decided to proceed with the idea and is currently developing an app store for banned apps and more. Apparently, he got so many positive responses to his idea that he felt compelled to make it happen. Here's a quote from the TechCrunch article with some additional details about the project,

    An Android developer by the name of Kousik Dutta is building an alternative Android app store which will house the apps that have been banned from Google’s official Android Market. These will include the custom ROMs (customized versions of the Android OS), classic gaming emulators pulled due to copyright complaints, unofficial tethering apps removed at the behest of mobile operators, Visual Voicemail apps, one-click rooting apps, and more.

    What apps are banned?

    Only ones I can think of are tethering ones. But can't you get those from Amazon app?

    Once this will be completed, Jail Broken iPhones will lose the last advantage they have over Android which is Cidia (or however it spells)..

    They not really "banned" they are just hidden. I like the idea of the app store but my biggest concern is who is going to police it. Yes we are all "big boys and girls" and need to take responsibility for our devices. But want to make sure that this app store dont turn into a place for idiots to go releasing bad apps that cause issues. With that said I still think its a good idea and wish Koush luck.

    about 95% of one click rooting apps, tethering apps, apps like the old "gameboid" where you could play most console/handheld games on your phone, some free mp3 downloading apps (music junk) and im sure there are others...
    i hope this works out, im tired of using a certain shady app in order to see and update "banned" and "hidden" apps i have, and it will also hopefully encourage the app developers to resume/continue working on these apps

    As long as it's policed just enough to keep malware off the market, I don't see the problem.

    How much does the AM charge you to put an app there?
