    CyanogenMod - Yesterday 7:31 PM - Public
    Read below, leave your thoughts here or on the original post.[1]

    [1] If this gets off the ground, it would not be limited to CM, but all custom ROMs
    Koushik Dutta originally shared this post:
    CyanogenMod App Store

    I've been bouncing this idea around for a while now, and it seems like an even better idea now, given my recent brush with this problem: we need an App Store for root apps. We also need an app store for apps that are getting shut down for no good reason, other than carrier, or some random corporation doesn't like it. [1]

    +CyanogenMod has a huge following now. In fact, we are about to pass 1 million unique, active, user installs. CMStats
    This is, pardon my french, ****ing huge.

    As the project grows, so do our server requirements, hardware requirements, etc. One of the ideas I brought up to +Steve Kondik was to have a built in app store in +CyanogenMod, independent of the Android Market. A portion of the sales from the App Store could go towards funding the CyanogenMod project. [2]

    What are your opinions on this topic? Would you users actually use a CM App Store over the Android Market, etc? [3]



    [1] Apps removed from the Market includes, one click root apps, emulators, tether apps, Visual Voicemail apps, and more. These are all completely legal (Nintendo emulators are fine, ROMs are NOT, there is a distinction).

    [2] I've actually approached Amazon about bundling their AppStore in CM if they gave CM a cut of the sales. But they brushed me off, saying that was something they could talk about in a few months :p

    [3] There is no reason that it would be a CM only app store, of course, any ROM could include it.

    I wouldn't use it over the regular market too often unless it's for stuff like emulators or certain apps not available on the market at the moment.

    Well for me while it wouldn't take over Android Market, it would be useful for the reasons stated i.e rooted apps,one click root apps.

    To me it would be akin to the Amazon app store, a compliment and competition for them and Android market.


    Competition in a free market is always good and spawns innovation and an incentive to improve your product.

    It's a great idea and I would welcome another option to get apps I want and/or need.

    This wouldnt be a replacement for the Android Market, but a market for all things that teh Android Market 86's for no good reason and root apps, etc.

    a year and a half ago you could dl z4root etc from the market, but now if it has anything to do with rooting the phone it gets yanked.

    And with the CM crew doing you can be assured no one has tampered with the apps like we have to deal with now with them all being hosted god knows where.
