    App's that require root will say that , usually pretty clearly labeled "ROOT ONLY"

    but the majority of apps do not require root ....

    go get some apps!

    and rooting will not get you paid apps for free, thats not what its for. you should always pay for apps you like/use alot if you can (as in they have a paid version, but most venders make more $ off the ad supported apps/version then off the paid for version)

    Thanks. Glad to hear I can download apps without rooting.

    btw, I do agree. If an app I download requires payment I pay it. I appreciate that people out there are writing this stuff.

    Thanks again!
