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: #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,

1. How to enable / disable Bluetooth

Hi folks,

I'm writing an app that will, among other things, disable Bluetooth.
To do this, I've set the "android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN", and
inside an onClick() listener I'm using the following:

Settings.System.BLUETOOTH_ON, 0);

However, this does nothing on the actual phone.

Further, using the corresponding getInt() function to readback the
status crashes the app:

Settings.System.BLUETOOTH_ON, btStatus);

Can someone guide me as to what is wrong, and/or what is the proper
way to enable/disable Bluetooth?

Many thanks,
