CyanogenMod app store in the works, to accommodate banned Android apps

To launch an app store dedicated to banned Android applications – that was the idea that Koushik Dutta, a CyanogenMod contributor, threw on the table a couple of weeks ago. And did the crowd love...

Yeah, nothing like a black market of Android apps. These apps are banned for a reason, but hey, go on ahead and turn your expensive phone into a paperweight.

Funny because the same thing happens the your iPhone when you hold it.

That's why Cydia has both banned and unbanned apps from the App Store, hell they're basically all free. That's every app on iOS for free right? Might as well turn that expensive paperweight into expensive oxygen.

you have never heard of Cydia, have you Mizzy? This is a hacker's store, not a Chinese knock off store filled with viruses. Those already exist.. for both iOS and android.

I've heard of Cydia, but unlike Android where you have to root to get to customize your phone, I don't need to do that for iPhone to enjoy it.

No... I think you have it the other way around.
Unlike iOS where you have to jailbreak to get to customize your phone, I don't need to do that on Android to enjoy it.
Funny thing is how majority of iOS users with Cydia get it just to get free apps, which is basically sticking it to Apple while majority of Android users who root do it in order to unlock features made by carriers which is sticking it to carriers.

This has nothing to do with Apple. But I guess you two have to find someway to justify your phones not being on par with the iPhone.

Maybe they should change the name to "Black Market"

i like the idea of an app store to continue the support for such a great after market solution just as long as banned apps that are harmful are not going to find this as a safe haven for nonsense.

at&t deems they don't want a certain app available on the market for your phone. It does not show up in your market. That same exact app may be available on Verizon's or t-mobiles app store. Now with a cyanogen store you could download that app from a reliable source. Otherwise you need to find the .apk on some download site somewhere and hope it doesn't have malware inside it.
