    I recently put up the beta version of the Android Forums "Android Market" which you can view in right hand sidebar by category or by visiting

    Android Market and Android Applications Forum are two VERY different areas and need to be used according to the rules of each. PLEASE follow these rules... it will make everyone's experience much more enjoyable:

    Applications Forum should be used for ALL discussion related to Applications. Whether you have APP IDEAS, need TROUBLE SHOOTING HELP for applications you've downloaded or ANYTHING ELSE. We will expand the Applications forum as necessary but ALL conversation about apps needs to stay in the Android Forums' Application Forum.

    Now as for the Android Market...

    Android Market on is a REFERENCE TOOL
    The Android Market on Android Forums is intended to be a resource that catalogs all of the Android Applications available, offers more information, download/purchase links, reviews, screen shots, videos, etc...

    Members Can Submit Applications To Android Market
    Please only submit Applications that have NOT yet been submitted (search first). ALL submissions will go into a moderation queue and we'll accept entries that are properly formatted. It would be great if members helped keep our market up to date!

    Once you submit an application you CANNOT edit it... so make sure you get everything right and entered properly the first time around.

    Market Replies are for REVIEWS ONLY
    If you "REPLY" to an application listed on the Android Market it should ONLY be for the purpose of offering your personal review of the application. All replies/reviews go into a moderation queue and reviews that add little insight and/or no value will be deleted.

    We Know... We Have A Lot Of Work To Do...
    Our Android Market is FARRRR from done and we know we have a lot of work to do. Design, layout, graphics, organization, links, fields, downloads, etc... the Market is a work in progress.

    BUT we wanted to have a reference/rating/review area for apps ready for the G1 launch and some of you already have or will be getting your G1 shortly....

    Feel free to offer suggestions, opinions and feedback on this STICKY THREAD and we'll address them as they come. However, keep in mind that many of your suggestions are probably already on our To Do List.

    Thanks Everyone... I think the Android Market at Android Forums will become one of our most useful features... but HELP US keep it CLEAN by following these rules!

    good work! I like what this site is doing.

    is the 'android market' on open for renaming?

    by that I mean: some apps listed in the "android market" on this forum might not be on the official android market. rather, they might require downloading a ".apk" file to your phone from the web.

    i just thought the current name might be misleading for some. *shrug*

    i could be wrong.
