    Hey guys are the apps in the market place open source? If so how can I view them/modify one if I wanted to?

    I'm a native C and PHP coder and really looking to learn how to build apps and looking at already implemented code makes it easy for me (just my style).

    Well thanks for the help!

    Hey

    Some are, some (most) are not.
    You will need to check if those apps have websites where you could get the source.
    If you want the source for learning then make sure you check out the examples provided by google.

    Cheers
