You have a great idea for an app for the Android Market, but you want to get paid for it. Well, the Android Market is now accepting priced applications from US and UK developers. Developers are asked to visit the publisher web site and upload their application along with pricing for end users. You can get to that page by clicking on this link
. Priced applications will be available in the Android Market by the middle of next week for US customers. Later this quarter, developers in Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, and Spain will be allowed to offer priced applications with additional countries expected to be announced by the end of the first quarter. As you might have expected, payments and billings will be handled by Google Checkout. Also announced today was availability of free apps in the Android Market for users in Austrailia starting this Sunday.
