Default New App Store for Banned Apps on the Way

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://techcrunch.com/2012/01/20/developer-is-building-an-app-store-for-banned-android-apps/' target='_blank'>http://techcrunch.com/2012/01/20/de...d-android-apps/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"An Android developer by the name of Koushik Dutta is building an alternative Android app store which will house the apps that have been banned from Google&rsquo;s official Android Market. These will include the custom ROMs (customized versions of the Android OS), classic gaming emulators pulled due to copyright complaints, unofficial tethering apps removed at the behest of mobile operators, Visual Voicemail apps, one-click rooting apps, and more."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1327425548.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Koushik Dutta, the developer known for creating ClockworkMod, is creating an app store for things like tethering apps, ROMs, emulators, and whatever else doesn't have a home on any other market.&nbsp; There is no launch date right now but if you check the source you'll see a screen shot of a page for a developer to upload, showing progress has been made.</p><p>One thing I love about Android is the app store options you have without having to jump through hoops other than check one box in your settings.&nbsp; It took AT&amp;T a while to get a clue but other than that no carrier has had a problem with alternate app stores.&nbsp; It will be interesting to see how carriers respond once this new app store becomes a reality.</p>
