    are there any legal sites where I download market content?

    reason I ask his, I can't find some things on the market... I assume its a compatability issue but if I do it illegally they work on my wildfire...

    so if I want to do it legally how can I? or am I going to have to stick with illegals if I want the apps I do?

    Buying apps from anywhere but the marketplace is pretty much dodgy/illegal territory.

    Downloading free apps from anywhere is pretty much fine I think.

    I just browse the market using appbrain.com then sync it to my phone. Easy.

    take for example... skyfire isn't available for the HTC wildfire and won't show up in the market... yet I got it off an illegal site and it works fine... how does that work?

    OP: yes, there are several sites.

    Appbrain.com, slideme.org, and androidzoom.com to name a few. I suspect that from one iteration of Android to another is close enough that some stuff will run on a version that maybe the Dev didn't have in mind. Also, from what I could see in the Market, Skyfire's beta is free, so if that's what you have it isn't stolen.

    :thinking:
    This is an utterly false statement. There is no debate over this.
    You can find several alternate stores that are 100% legit and in the clear.
    Google even acknowledged their existence and has positive things to say about them.
