    Contacting the developer is probably the best idea. I've seen the request for these before and it may be that the developer is already working on it. The more that contact them the more they will know there is a market for their product on the Android platform and the more likely they will be to produce it.

    The last I heard, Smule was telling people that Android wasn't a profitable platform for them to develop on. Sad and ridiculous.

    Android isn't profitable to develop for. The user base is a fraction of the iPhones and the small number of phones out there all have different specs. In addition to that piracy is even easier on Android since you don't need to load apps through iTunes.

    Google needs to set down a strict set of hardware requirements that dictates the screen resolution and processor speed. I would suggest a two-tiered model with a fully-specced category for your Droids and N1s and a budget spec for your Erises.

    Then they need to take control of the market. First they need to do some quality control. I'm not saying they should deny apps based on content but just that they should make sure there are no beta releases and that everything in there works as promised. Once they purge the garbage the next step is to do away with the money back policy. How many apps do you think Apple would have sold if people were allowed to return the ones they regret buying? This model only benefits the consumer in the short run as in the long run it will drive away good developers.

    Along with stricter quality control they need to make to market easier to navigate and find apps. They need a spotlight section to highlight apps that are selected by actual humans as being good. Google seldom catches flack for the fact that they do everything in their power to eliminate humans from the chain and automate everything. This is evidenced recently by the N1 customer service debacle. They need a few actual humans to help make the customer experience better.

    I would also suggest they allow developers to keep more of their profits. Right now they take the same 30% cut as Apple. I they cut hat in half to 15% they would attract more developers.

    Curious on a few points: What is "Featured Apps" in the very first screen you pop into on the Market? I was figuring that was apps that were downloaded the most in a recent timeframe. I understand that you're asking for more human response, but seriously, have you seen the comments on some of the apps?

    I think taking out the beta software is a horrible idea, unless you're saying after their final releases. Developers need a place to test their apps and get feedback, and a lot of people don't feel comfortable downloading directly from the developer. I consider that a strength, unless the beta apps stay after their releases.

    Now the money back thing... I've never used it. Every app I've bought I just suck it up and deal with it. I'm not sure why developers would have a problem with this policy, however. If they are putting out a quality app, they shouldn't have to worry about users refunding. The refund period is only 24 hours, yes? Perhaps I'm just not seeing the problem with this.

    Good suggestions all, imo, though I'd quibble with a blanket "no return" policy. Would be sufficient, I think, to allow individual vendors to determine their own return policies, stated up front.

    I have to wonder how many "free" applications for the android platform will still be around a year from now when developers are drowning in demands for support and enhancements and no revenue to support them.

    It corrects the tone of your voice so if you sing out of tune it sounds better.
    I'm more interested in the Voice Band for the iPhone app. Search Youtube for examples. This app also has an Auto Pitch mode to help you stay on key so it seems like you could just sing and skip the instruments if you wanted to.

    Oh... that is not nearly as cool as I'd hoped. I wish there was a guitar app that made me sound better... that'd be cool.

    You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about and your arguments are all flawed. You want Google to run the market the way Apple does? The way Apple is doing things is driving small developers AWAY from developing for the ipod. In a few years there will be far more Android users than Iphone users, saying that that it's not a profitable platform is ludicrous.

    I still can't believe you suggested they do away with the 24 hour refund policy. Are you kidding me? Do you know what a trial is?

    Actually I have some idea of what I'm talking about. I've read a lot on the subject, and from actual news sources not just a message board.

    And for the 24 hour return policy, read what the little developers themselves think about it:

    I could give you 20 news stories that say the opposite.

    A measly two page thread with a few whiners? lol...

    You know how easy it is to pirate any PC software? All it takes is to go to a torrent site and hit the download button. I guess no one should release any paid software for the PC either then, huh? Why shouldn't a user be able to request refund within 24 hours? If you buy a product from almost anywhere else you get far longer to evaluate the product before you can ask for a refund so why not with software from the android market?

    Oh, and since you seem to think that Apples policies are so great read this...

    Apple's iPhone App Refund Policies Could Bankrupt Developers

    "We reported yesterday about Apple’s alleged delay in payments to iPhone app developers, but there is more alarming news from iPhone[​IMG] developers about Apple’s refund policies. Apparently, if iPhone users decide that they want a refund for an app (users can get a refund within 90 days, according to Apple policy), Apple requires that developers give back the money they received from the sale. But here’s the kicker—Apple will refund the full amount to the user and says that it has the right to keep its commission. So the developer not only has to return the money for the sale, but also has to reimburse Apple for its commission. Apple charges a 30% commission on all paid apps sold through the App Store. So basically, developers get 70% of a given sale but if the end-user wants a refund, the developer has to pay Apple 100% of the sale."

    Just because you want something really really badly doesn't make it so. Android as a platform is not as appealing to developers as the iPhone and this isn't me talking, it's the developers themselves saying it.

    You seem to think I'm your adversary but that's something made up in your mind I assure you. I'm not an Apple fanboy. I posted what I posted because I want the same high quality apps on Android that are available on the iPhone. I want Google to work to make the platform more appealing so more quality apps will land on Android phones.

    Look at just about any app that is available on both platforms and tell me which is better. Why does Monopoly on Android look like it was ported from the original NES when it looks amazing on the iPhone?

    Also, you're a dick.

    Funny how you ignore the article I posted which completely makes your previous comments look ridiculous proving that you have no idea what you're talking about. Go ahead and resort to name calling because you've been proven wrong.
