Android :: Market Ranks Apps In The Market

Oct 6, 2010

I know my question answers but since there's a lot of you who really spend your time scrutinizing your rank, downloads and all, I'm trying it maybe someone came up with empiric science on this one :

Does anyone understood even bits of how the market ranks apps in the market ?

I usually don't look at stats but following another post on this topic, I counted my rank in my category ... 565 ... Ouch that hurts! Especially when half the apps in front of mine, are crap apps with less downloads and ratings as low as 1 star :).

Not that it would make a difference being rank 250 instead of 565...But this is humiliating a little :s

Since my app has been on the market for one month, i'm wondering if age matters ...

I know I should have asked in the market "black hole of hell " google group but the name says it all. And I'm sure some of you already figured out some of the black magic used by the Market to rank apps.

General :: Disconnecting Apps From Android Market - Deleting Market Link?

Apr 7, 2011

I have an app that was installed via Android Market. And so, the Android Market knows when new versions are out and notifies me of an update. Titanium Backup calls this the 'Market Link', not sure what else it could be called.

how would I go about 'disconnecting' the app from the Market? Deleting the market link as if it were side-loaded?

Yes, I know this means no more updates for the app etc. Which is actually what I'm after.

I'm using a SGS - DocRom V9.6 with Speedmod Kernel k13a

Android :: Upgrade Non-market App With A New Market Version

Sep 15, 2010

I am developping (for my company) an app included on a project that will have 2 versions:

- 1st simple version to download using a OTA server, clients accesss to an URL to download.

- 2nd version more complex to be published on the Market.

The question here is that the process to publish on the Android Market is under bureaucratic internal process and it takes a long time, so the idea do reduce the time to market is to provide an OTA version.

There is any possibility for users that download application via OTA to upgrade the application for version published later on the Market? (Both Application will be signed with the same key).

HTC Droid Eris :: Market Fix Changed My Market Icon Back To Original

Apr 29, 2010

I had an edited png for the market icon in the vending apk but when I applied my edited png's to Ivans rom with the market fix it seems to have changed the icon back to the original market Icon. When I first loaded the rom it showed my edited png for the market icon but after my first reboot it seems to change the icon back to the original. I assume that the market is updating upon reboot so I pulled the vending apk off my phone and my edited png's are still there but its still showing the original market icon. Anybody else with an edited market icon notice this or any ideas of why its going back to original? I have tried this a couple times and it always updates after first reboot...

Android :: Is There A Way To Get Icons For Apps On Market?

Aug 22, 2009

Just wondering if it is possible to get icons for applications on the Android Market? For example, if there is an application called "com.mycompany.someapp", is there a way to programmatically grab an image (icon) for that application either through an Android API or by simply downloading it from someplace on the net? I know it is possible to get the icon for an installed app using the PackageManager API; however, I don't believe that works for apps that are not installed. Failing that, since PackageManager can get a list of icons for installed applications, it should be possible to compile a fairly comprehensive list by creating an app that queries the PackageManger and uploads all the installed app icons to a webserver. That's not as nice as a true API, but it seems like it would work reasonably well. Can anyone think of anything particularly wrong with that approach?

Android :: Can't Find Many Top Apps In Market

Nov 19, 2009

I have a new Droid Eris and have been having a really hard time finding apps that I read about in different places. I often find myself reviewing a very popular, top-rated app, then not being able to find it no matter how I search in the Market. These aren't usually obscure, ancient, one-off apps. I usually am hearing about them in 'top Android apps' articles, etc.

I usually search by the exact name, then alternate spellings. And I recently got the Barcode Scanner and am scanning the QR codes over at AndroLib.com to see if it's any easier. But I haven't gotten ANY of those to come up.

- What gives with the Android Market? Could I have something setup improperly?

I live in Los Angeles, so I doubt it's a location issue.

Some sample apps I couldn't find just tonight:
- Camera ZOOM FX
- Voice Trans
- Voice Text

Android :: Installing Apps Without Market

Oct 21, 2009

I have recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy android phone. I wish to install applications that I download legally from the internet.I do not agree to the android-market licence agreement and have clicked on "decline". I only wish to install apps that I get elsewhere because I do not approve of the remote-kill clause in the market licence.All tutorials on how to install a downloaded app involve me first installing "app installer" from the market. That cannot be right. I cannot be forced to accept the market licence agreement in order to be able to install non market apps.Any suggestions on how I might get apps installed without ever clicking on "accept" on the market's licence agreement?I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. ANY suggestions welcome. I will not accept a remote kill switch. My files are my files.
