Default Marketplace Spam

"Not to beat a dead horse...well, actually that's exactly what we are doing, but looks like either Microsoft is becoming lax in enforcing mass-publishing of apps or we misunderstood what they meant."

Some days I still hanker for the time when finding an application for Windows Mobile meant hunting through internet, when payment methods and systems were all over the place, and over the air installation was a pipe dream. Even with all the convenience and security of an onboard marketplace, I sometimes feel that we've taken a step backwards - especially when dealing with marketplace spam, and with finding an app that, you know, actually does something.

Well, I can understand this case.

We are talking about the same application with different data - one for each city, all sold for money separately.

It is like a GPS application with maps for different countries, in which you have to pay for each map.

As long as the market doesn't accept the possibility of selling add-ons for the same application as one record only, they have to accept this kind of posts.

BTW the same happens in similar cases in Apple's appstore and in the Android Market.
