Market API to access app descriptions and ratings?

 I'm trying to create an app that would allow me to organize my
installed applications into various groups.  As part of the
application I would like to display information about the app
including the description the developer provides as part of the
market, its current rating, and the number of downloads.

I am aware of the Intent to launch the market for a particular app as
explained here: 
 http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/publishing.html #market

But I don't want to launch the market for the app, I want to access
the information and provide a customized display.  Can anyone point me
towards some documentation that explains this or provide a code
snippet example of how I could accomplish this with an Intent?

Thanks for you help,

I really like the multiplying android effect you see when you first
visit www.android.com, above the titles Open Source Project/How Will
You Shape It/Get The Source Code.

It reminds me of a lava lamp. I could stare at it for hours. Is it
possible to get this as a screen saver? Please advise.

2. setOnKeyListener problem

Hi everyone,

this is my first post here so I'll try not to extend so much.

I've got a Layout with 3 EditText, called mText1, mText2 and mText3.
I want to navigate through them by pressing the ENTER KEY, so I
decided to set a onKeyListener for every of them and every time I
detect the user presses the ENTER KEY, I set the focus on the next
EditText. But it sets the focus on the "next's next". If I press the
ENTER KEY on mText1, the focus is set on mText3; the same with mText2
(it is set on mText1) and so on...

I can't understand this kind of behaviour.

Any solution? Many thanks in advance.

Here, the code:
mText1.setOnKeyListener(new OnKeyListener() {

                        public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent 
event) {
                                if(keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER) {
                                        mText2.requestFocus();
                                        return true;
                                }
                                return false;
                        }

        });
mText2.setOnKeyListener(new OnKeyListener() {

                        public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent 
event) {
                                if(keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER) {
                                        mText3.requestFocus();
                                        return true;
                                }
                                return false;
                        }

        });
mText3.setOnKeyListener(new OnKeyListener() {

                        public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent 
event) {
                                if(keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER) {
                                        mText1.requestFocus();
                                        return true;
                                }
                                return false;
                        }

        });

3. Is the valid cert store available (or viewable)?

4. I have an idea but don't know where to start

5. Android spec or feature list?

6. Android/WebKit browser: any way to intercept the navigation keys from a script?

7. What's the Cost ??
