Android :: Free Apps And Security?

Oct 7, 2010

I've migrated over from the iPhone to Android (G2 on T-Mobile) and really like the Android system. However, one thing I've noticed is that there are a lot more fully functioning and useful apps that are free vs. the iPhone, where most apps that are worth a damn cost you at least a dollar or more. Which has me wondering whether there is some sort of tracking or information gathering going on with these free Android apps to "compensate" for giving the program away.

I don't mean to sound cynical but it just doesn't seem logical that there is an army of developers willing to spend time and energy on apps they give away for free.

HTC Droid Eris :: Security Enabled Apps (radio Players)?

Jan 14, 2010

Background: Bought an Eris several weeks back. Had AOnline Radio and DroidCumulus installed. Phone broke, got it replaced at store with another Eris. Tried to download both apps, could only find/download mms lite, a similar but inferior app by the same company. Emailed support, and their response was:"AOR, DroidCumulus are Security enabled apps.If your device is not categorized as secured as per android market,then you will not be able to see the app."Does anyone know what this means? Is there a setting that I can change? Why would one phone be security enabled and not another that should be identical?

Android :: Non Free Vs Copy Protected Apps For Rooted Phones?

Jul 9, 2009

I'm still a little confused as to what the situation is here. With a rooted Android phone, are all non-free market apps unavailable, or just ones with copy-protection? For non-free, un-protected apps (are there any?), can they be purchased directly and installed on the phone without going through the market?

Android : Are 3rd Party App Stores A Good Idea For Free Apps?

Nov 2, 2010

After publishing a free app to Android Market I have received numerous solicitations from 3rd party app stores to publish my app such as and To date, I have not pursued that and my app is only available on Android Market.

I would love to hear some developer opinions about this: Is it better to stick to Android Market only, or does it make sense to publish your free apps in as many stores as you can? What do you think are the pros and cons to each approach?

General :: Free Ram 0.0 Bytes Android 4.1.2 - Low Memory Msg For All Apps / Frequent Crash

Sep 1, 2013

I bought iball andi 5li android smart phone a few days back. The configuration of the phone is:

512mb ram
4gb internal
1.2ghz cortex a9 processor
android 4.1.2

Although my device runs almost every app out there (including temple run, subway surfers etc.) but occasionally im facing problems.

Problem occurs after 3-4 days of restarting the phone. When i restart and check the ram usage it says 350 mb (approx) as used and 150mb(approx) as free ram every app runs smoothly but as days pass by gradually the free ram starts decreasing down to 30 mb where all the apps (games and browsers) start crashing with a low memory message. then the conditions get worse after approx 2 hrs free ram is now 0.0 bytes and even the launcher,settings etc crash with a low memory message. The only solution out is to restart the phone.

[used androids before and is quite aware of closing or killing apps but none is working]

Already Tried:
# removing apps from recent list
# stopping apps from Setting>apps>running apps & cached apps as well
# restoring to factory defaults
# used ram freeing apps (no change on ram)
