    I have come across several sites that advertise that you can spend $9.99 a year and get all the apps that are on android market for free. How legit are these sites. The site that I keep coming across is url removed I have come across others, but I can't think of their names. Does anyone use this route to get apps? If so which sites do you recommend to use.

    They're just as legit as those emails you get saying you can download Windows 7 for $49.99 :)

    they are illegal, and being your first post it makes me question if you're truly innocently asking or trying to spam that link. Be careful either way.

    My intentions arent to spam a sales link. I was inquiring to see if this was a good option rather than paying for every single app. I've had my evo for a month now and have seen these links spamed under the review section of an app. It sounds like these subscriptions are similar to what Napster was doing back in the day with music. The producers weren't getting $$ for their music because it was being recirculated for free via Napster. Hope I didn't offend the moderator.

    I'd ask the developers of the paid apps you want if this is a good idea.

    There are only two possibilities:

    You download stolen software, that may or may not work correctly, and may or may not contain some sort of malware, or

    You send them your money and never see anything for it.

    Neither seems like a really good option when there are so many free and really cheap apps available legitimately. I could understand the desire to not pay for apps if the developers were charging hundreds of dollars, like they do with desktop software. But if you can't afford to pay a couple of bucks for an Android app, you probably can't afford to own a smartphone.

    It is illegal. I find it truly hard to understand how you could even think otherwise. Your first post here is to make this thread together with a link. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, others may not have been so lenient. Please don't let me down.

    I might give him the benefit of the doubt just because my parents tend to believe every scam on the internet that is CLEARLY a scam. 1st post is shady though. but yeah, it is clearly illegal/scam.
