Android Apps May Soon Have a Place if Banned

Although the Android Market is more "open" from the iPhone App Store - there's no approval process to get in - Google Android apps are still restrictions on the occasion, including emulators, music services legally-questionable, application withdrawals and one-click application root. Soon, these applications may have banned the app store to call their own.

Koushik Dutta, a developer of popular CyanogenMod firmware for Android, which is tossed around the idea of ​​a black market app store - my words, not his - is filled with applications that will only work on rooted Android phone.
"We also need an app store for apps that are increasingly closed for no good reason, other than the operator, or some random companies do not like it," wrote Dutta on Google +.
A "rooted" Android phone is roughly equivalent to a jailbroken iPhone, which allows users to tweak the phone in ways that manufacturers do not allow out of the box. (One big difference, though: Android phone can install applications from outside the Android Market without rooting, while the iPhone is limited to the App Store.) Rooted Users often install CyanogenMod, a pretty clean version of Android that removes bloatware that came with the phone.

Dutta hopes CyanogenMod application store will serve the users while also providing some income, which he said would go to the hardware costs and server costs for future versions.
