    I guess this sounds good to me as long as koush doesn't decide to take more than google takes id switch since google Imo takes a huge chunk of developer profits

    Hmm... Interesting, reminds me of of Cydia and Rock back when I was Jailbreaking! I think the great thing about the Market is that it _doesn't_ discriminate against (most) apps. I think we'll lose a great part of Android if we do that. Maybe a compilation of apps in one place, that link to the Market but I don't think that we should get it split up, any apps that aren't allowed in the Market could get linked to a private site of the dev. :biggrin:

    Yes, I'll be able to see all the apps I can't run unless I root my device, all in one place :^)

    I also like that they will host some arbitrarily "banned" apps. It's about time they were made available somewhere.
    I'd like to add a request to make available all released versions of the apps, so that we can downgrade to a particular version if we choose to.
    And a mandatory "What's new in this release" section with each release (Amazon doesn't do this; Google's Android Market does).

    Hey! This is beginning to sound like sourceforge.net
