    The growth of the Android App Marketplace has been phenomenal. Perhaps the open-ness of Google is attracting people because they don't fear their app getting rejected. Whatever the reason, the number of the apps that are being introduced into the marketplace shows no signs of slowing down, and in fact is accelerating at an amazing pace.

    In March alone, over 9000 apps were added. Lets hope that this growth continues and we find ourselves being flooded with a deluge of very useful and quality apps.

    Too bad it seems 8900 are Japanese porn of some type. This Japanese porn wave coming to the market is getting annoying.

    I agree.
    They are not even quality porn apps at that. If they were it might be not so terrible. :p

    AppAware and AppBrain Market Sync make wading through all the ****ty apps a little bit easier.

    I'm teaching myself to write apps for the Android API. I haven't written anything yet but I have several ideas for apps that I am eager to write and put on the market. :)

    Do you guys sign in appbrain with your google account? I'm tentative to do that with a credit card being on file and the fact Google doesn't audit these apps.

    Seems to be fairly secure.
    Then again nothing is 100% but I did not see any issues so I signed up.

    Wow, AppBrain is great. I hated having to wade through all the apps on the phone, so this really makes it easy to sort through and take a look at. Count me happy! :motdroidhoriz:

    Exactly and this is why Apple App Store is still so much more superior when it comes to apps. And half the apps we have that Apple has also are a lot better on iPhone than they are for Android because of the fact Android has too many different versions of the OS out so it makes it a pain to write apps for the Android platform and not many good developers want to get involved with it.

    I wouldn't want to suggest that any information on the web is 100% secure, but the fact that appbrain uses one's google account/password for their login does not give appbrain (or anyone who might crack their site) access to the credit card information stored in the Google Checkout system; the application used to charge you for apps in the Marketplace.

    To reassure yourself, try the following:

    Login to your google account and go to Google Checkout. You'll find that you're unable to see or modify an existing credit card number for your account. You can delete a credit card, add another, or change the billing information to another address, but you cannot retrieve the actual credit card number on file with Google. In short, the worst that can be done is to make your credit card unusable in the Google checkout system.

    That's not to say that access to the information stored in the google checkout system is insignificant, especially if it's combined with other information about you from other sources. But if you use the internet for purchases using a credit card, there are many much less secure sites than Google. And, of course, if you ever use a credit card for a meal, you likely hand your credit card to someone you don't know who takes it to the back and returns a few minutes later. That is much, much more risky than providing your google account login information to a third party.

    It would be nice if Google kept an eye on the Marketplace and removed the apps that dont work properly.
