 Isn't there something in the groups terms of service that says "don't spam"?

Ah.. here we are. Section 4:
Google authorizes you to view [..] the Materials solely for your personal,
non-commercial use.
You may not sell [..] or otherwise use the Materials in any way for any
public or commercial purpose.

There is also a section on "may not: post [..] disruptive commercial
messages or advertisements, or anything else prohibited by the Group owner." .. 

(I was going to post this on -dev but.. hopefully the mods will see this on
-discuss. Obviously they got my addy from -dev.)

Its nice to know android has already attracted scammers. Hopefully nobody
will fall for this crap. (FWIW at first glance I thought it was from goog
since gmail doesn't display the 'from' info by default. It certainly reads
like an 'approved' ad..)

Subject: Increase Your App Downloads on Android Market

 Hi Android Developer,

A great way to distinguish your Android app from the crowd and increase your
downloads is the newly launched Mogees Reward
Network<> ;

You join by integrating the basic version of our SDK (not payments
enabled).  Let your users know they earn Mogees Reward Points for
downloading your app and each day they use your app.  Points can be redeemed
for gifts like Amazon Gift Certificates or a Nintendo Wii.

Why join?

        More Usage.  Increase the downloads relative to your competition.

        No Costs.  This program is completely free to you and Android users
and there is no catch.

        Open Enrollment.  We are currently in a limited time open
enrollment so no application or approval to join.

        All On Us.  Basically, we pay Android users to download your app
and use it on a daily basis.

We are providing this as the starting step to our virtual currency platform
and are looking to lay the foundation for the network.  You can find out
more about the Mogees Reward Network at 

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Warm regards,

~ Nancy

1. Looking to hire a developer for an Android app

Hi Everyone,

We are looking to hire a programer to develop an Android app for the
market place. The app is going to function as a shortcut to our
streaming media content that we offer on our site
Ideally we would like to work with someone who has had some experience
with list views and the media player. The app would to start out with
feature our top ten videos, we could later expand it to offer more
content from our site if it proves to be popular.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post a message looking for a
developer but I didn't have much luck searching for one in a general
search. If interested please send an email to
Ideally we would prefer to work with a US based programer but would
consider other areas for the right developer.

Thanks in advance!


2. Multiple email accounts

Hi there,

When using Android for the first time, it only allows you to register
one of your gmail accounts. Would you be able to create a function
that can allow you to sign on with a different account without having
to go through the Internet?

Thanks :)
