Naming Applications on Android (and maybe others)

    I thought I read it on this board but now I cannot find it. It was something about a user taking the beta packages on here and then registering the name on the Android Market.

    The post went on to say the user should register the name before posting the beta.

    Do you have to be signed up as a developer before registering these names?

    And if so, if I am paying a person to create the app, should I register myself and upload the app?

    A few things come to mind - if I pay the developer and he uploads it, I won't have access to it or anything, right? But if I upload it and the developer puts some type of an Easter Egg or something, then I would be liable and Google would not allow me to upload any more apps?

    Corey,

    I'm guessing you might have been talking about this thread:

    [WARNING] DavinciDevelopers steal apps from this forum ! - xda-developers

    The above thread discusses how some nefarious folks have grabbed .apk files developers have published for people to try. Well, if you don't upload your app (even a test one) to the Android Market as at least a "draft" version, then someone could take your app and publish it to the Market themselves, charging for it, and besmirching your name and good work.

    Its at least a good cautionary tale, even if this is not the question you were asking.

    Cheers!

    That's the one - thanks! So it seems I need to even have some type of "draft" even.
