Submission + - Alternative Android App Store to House Banned Apps->

sl4shd0rk writes: In contrast to the Apple's iron-fisted control over their App store the Android Market is much more open. Google does however, on occasion, remove apps it deems inappropriate such as emulators, legally-questionable music services, tethering apps and one-click root apps. If Koushik Dutta, of cyanogenmod fame has his way though, these heretic apps may have a home after all. Dutta plans an "underground" Android Market complete with an approval process to weed out malicious applications; something Google doesn’t do. Ideally, this will give Android users a more trustable source to get applications from without having to resort to dictatorial software control.
