Is the developer or Android Market selling the Apps?

 If I had to guess, given that it's apparently impossible to buy an app from
the Android Market in any other currency than dollars, that collecting and
documenting VAT is another aspect of all of this that hasn't actually been
thought through. And no, history would suggest that you won't get anything
like authoritative advice here. Which is interesting, all by itself.

(This may not get posted to the android-discuss list--last I heard, I was
still being "moderated" by Dan Morrill for having actually attempted to
discuss a news story here...)

Is the developer or Android Market selling the Apps?

 Developers need to be clear and understand if they are the ones selling the
apps and giving a cut to Android Market.  This has totally different
liabilities from Android Market selling the apps and giving a cut to the
developer.
So developers, my question is to gauge what your understanding is till now:

Are you selling the app and issuing a receipt/invoice or is Android Market
selling it for you?

 eorge,

My understanding is that Market provides an all-in-one billing and
payment on behalf of the developer and the developer is the one selling
the app to the customer. Google then take their 30% cut for the service
provided.

This is the approach that Checkout is designed for, it's how PayPal
works, and so it would be unusual (but not impossible) for Market to
deviate from this model.

I would be very interested in an official answer to this question.

1. Downloading a file after http-get and http-post.

Hi there,

i am building an application which at some point sends a http-get to a
webserver and the webserver responds with a .zip file to download.
The same with a http-post. In a browser after clicking submit (post) or the
link (get)
it asks me where i should download the .zip file.

I want my android app to automatically download the file:
In the case of the post i build a name-value-pair and use execute the built
httppost:

 httppost.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvp));
 HttpResponse httpresponse = httpclient.execute(httppost);
 HttpEntity entity = httpresponse.getEntity();

How can i download the .zip file with which the webserver responds.

Can someone point me in the right direction, or perhaps give me an example
how to download files in android?

Kind regards,

Robin van Leeuwen
