 It's supposed to scale the size of fonts defined using the "sp" unit.
But this is not exposed to the user not really supported at the

1. How to force US Account in Android phone

Hi All,

This question may sound stupid but let me give you bit of my

I am a developer in a country which is neither a buying-app supported
nor a selling-app supported country, and have submitted my application
to Android market as a paid application.

Now, I would like to see if I can see my app on the the Android
market, but can't find a way to set my Android phone to as US account.

I have tried setting the location of my account to US, creating a new
Google Account and set my location to US, but both methods don't allow
me to browse the paid applications.

Is there a way to get around this? or should I physically be present
in one of those country to really test the presence of my paid apps in
the Android market?

Does the Android market determine the location by the IP address of
the Android Phone?

Thanks for your time reading,

Best regards,


2. Using OS 1.6 and Up , are we penalized on the market ?

We shall explain and handle case by case our potential users's concerns and educated them about our application. Like previously said, state into the app description the reason why the permission is needed is a good start :)
If you don't have room in the app description, put it on the website that your Market listing links to. That's what I do - list the app's permissions, and why each is needed, in an FAQ on my linked site. And I've yet to receive a single e-mail from a prospective user asking why the permissions are needed.
For the record, I've done exactly this on one of my apps, PLUS a big button on the main screen that links to the very same FAQ, and I still get a fair amount of users who fail to read it... 8-/ I guess this is a sign of hitting the mass market as opposed to hi-tech geeks, so it's not all bad. (In my case, the application is very much Sweden specific, so everything is in Swedish except, obviously, the Market as that is still not an option.) Best / Jonas --
