Not a bad sign for Android (1)

Slartidad (1717722) | more than 4 years ago | (#30714870)

This is simply a sign of the popularity of the Android market already. We just need to implement a system of public evaluation and non-anonymous submissions of apps. Privacy for using and surfing I support, but I want to know who I am paying if I purchase, or a review for free apps by people I trust

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
