    Yep, I saw it earlier this morning... I'm not a dev (yet! :eek:)... I'll probably play with it just 'cause.

    Everyone can be a dev now! (does this mean we'll have an aFart app? :D)

    This will flood the market with crap apps that do nothing other than make meow sounds.

    Well not necessarily. Isn't there a fee for putting apps out on the Market for hosting and such?

    You still have to pay the 25 dollar fee to become a developer, as well as have a webpage. but that is about it. I think most people would just use this to make apps for themselves.

    Like simple apps that are already on the market but arent perfect for the individual.

    also any news if we would be able to reverse engineer .apk's with something like this?

    I would love to modify some apps to make them better.

    Babybacon,

    You can reverse engineer apps with baksmali, ** Not that I support this at all.

    $25 one time fee + free website, is not out of the reach for most people.
