 Att seems to have a practical aproach, just do not allow installs from outside 
the android market. Seems like a necessary evil.




What really sucks is when your paid apps start showing up there too.
Over 35% (and climbing) of my installs of my paid app are from pirated
sources.

I would give my new seeded N1 back in a heartbeat in exchange for an
Android market that solved piracy in a meaningful way.  I'm sure
Google is working on something, but good lord things over there feel
like they take forever sometimes!

Hello List,

Two of my free apps from the market got listed today at the website
wareseeker[dot]com.

I did not consent to publish there, nobody ever asked for my permission. I
have contacted them through their contact form and via direct email, but no
answer since about 8 hours. Does anyone have a phonenumber of them? The
download count goes up.

I believe that no website has the right to distribute another developers
software without the consent, even if its free in the official android
market.

You might wanna check if your apps are on there too.

Any thoughts?

 I know. The idea is evilish. It may be necessary though. Maybe a small price to 
pay to combat piracy. You do know that in the USA AT&T is already doing this 
right? Surprised I haven't heard the cries for war. 




Doing that would mean you couldn't list your app on alternative markets and get 
access to all the users on devices which Google hasn't approved and therefore 
don't have Market installed.

  don't think you are loosing customers.    They are not really the type who 
will benefit from alternative markets because they already have access to the
main market. Pretty simple solution to limit most piracy. Remember that most
piracy is done by regular folks who find it easier to pirate something then to
buy it. I.e. Download a song from lime wire. Is really easy, you do not even
have to sign in or open an account. Now, people will still be able to pirate
apps if they root their phone. However, most people wont want to go to all that
trouble just to save a couple of bucks. Is easier to just pay for the app.

Wow, the more i talk about this the better it sounds. I suspect that other
companies will follow AT&T's example. Is a win, win situation, even for the
customer.

We just explain it's AT&Ts' decision so they should talk to them and request a
method for removing the restriction :).

2. Auto correct fail on soft keyboard

I set the editText with these flag

EditorInfo.TYPE_CLASS_TEXT|EditorInfo.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_CAP_SENTENCES|
EditorInfo.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_AUTO_COMPLETE|
EditorInfo.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_AUTO_CORRECT

And it works when I type in with my computer keyboard( the application
is running in a emulator).

But it fails when I click the editText and type in with the emulator,
the auto correct function doesn't work at all.

If I type in: what i cant do is giving up.

In hard keyboard, it is: What I can't do is giving up.
In soft keyboard,  it is: what i cant do is giving up.

Is there anything else I must set? Thanks!
