    I hope this doesn't turn into a iphone copycat league. I don't want to see 30+ flashlight, or 30+ farts, all copy's of each other. Yeah the iphone has alot more apps, but how many of those are just copycat's of other apps? I fear the android market is going in the same direction.......

    Of course that is going to happen, unless you think you can stop people from creating apps, it's just the way it is.

    There are plenty of places to use as good references for apps. The forums here and on other Android sites, sites like Gizmodo, etc.

    ^ This. My one friend was so confused how I knew so many good Droid apps, and I told her I learned them from this site. We have a good community here and it works.

    Just posting a random response here because it has to deal with the market, but this just further promotes idea that the market is tough to navigate through and developers should be somewhat upset....

    I am checking the Just-In section for applications and as I am scrolling down I see endless "Babes", "Boobs", "PhotoBooks" and themes. Legitimate applications are being hidden and simply relying on Top-Paid or Free will show the same ones a lot of the time, and of course unreliable ratings when people either fanboy an app or 1-star it because they do not understand the purpose - but that at least can be expected.

    I'm with you guys, less is more. I know there is a search function but you still have to sort through the junk that filters through so that you can get to your app. Nothing like the JOKE scientific calculator.... Although pretty darn funny!
