 ow about charging for the apps using a "service model"

You could name you apps like

com.foobar.theapp2009q1
com.foobar.theapp2009q2
com.foobar.theapp2009q3 com.foobar.theapp2009q4

When version X expires, the app can launch an Intent to point the user to
the newer version. This way it should be seamless.

This model should work for some apps (the "service" type, such as
dating/matchmaking, accessing real state info database, etc) but not others
(such as games, which people think once they paid they own the right to it
forever).

If you provide a good service, I think people won't mind paying $0.49 per
quarter for it ...

  don't see any clause in the Developer Distribution Agreement against
subscriptions. Especially, in this case, the user is buying 4 apps with
different package names (one for each quarter of the year). As far as the
market is concerned, there are 4 different apps.

I think the carrier will just be happier as long as the revenue keeps
coming. It's only if you get paid for the app in an alternative store,
they'd be mad.

When I do an SVN Update, I'm not getting WebViewDemo. I think I'm
getting all the apps except that one. Is there another way of getting
WebViewDemo?
