Suggestion for Google team to improve Android Market

I see several possible solutions with the existing model:

a) You invalidate an app after a certain amount of time so that it
rejects to run (quite hackish and not very great wrt updates, etc).

b) You don't sell your app but provide it for free, though you charge
for the service it uses in some other way like paypal or google
checkout or whatever appears to be suitable.

Though in general I like the idea, but it'll need technical overhead
to make it work and I doubt Google would be interested in doing that.
Perhaps an opportunity for some 3rd party...

Kind regards,

1. MyLocationOverlay throws exception

Hi, i tried to add an overlay to my mapview screen using the
MyLocationOverlay class, but it throws an exception and the overlay is
not displayed.

Any ideas?

        myLocationOverlay = new
MyLocationOverlay(AndroidResultsMap.this, mapView);

E/LocationManagerService(   51): isProviderEnabled got exception:

2. Lack of onscreen keyboard

Hi Everyone,

I hope that I reach the developers on this one as it is very
important.  Upon reading the first review of the g1 I found out that
there is no onscreen keyboard. An onscreen keyboard is essential for
touchscreen smartphones. With out it you are inhibiting the phone's
potential. A qwerty keyboard is wonderful to use but what about when
you dont wish to use the keyboard and want to work on only the touch
screen. I and many others prefer to have both an on screen keyboard as
well as a physical keyboard based on our daily needs. For example if i
want to quickly text someone without using my keyboard i could simply
type a quick reply on my screen, rather than opening the keyboard to
say "ok."  I would rather pull my phone out of my pocket at the office
type quickly on the screen the small menial task i needed to do slide
it just as quick back in my pocket than open the phone all the way to
communicate with someone.
 And how about web browsing? It seems you can start to web browse with
the phone closed but to type in the address or put in key search
information, i would have to open up the phone.

I have 2 windows mobile phones that I use and one is a pc phone and I
love switching back and forth on its "keyboards."  For heavy texting,
emails webbrowsing I use the keyboard, when I dont wish to open my
phone up and type i use my on screen keyboard. This issue will come up
again and again as soon as the phone is released to the public. This
is along the same lines as the iphone not having the mms feature.
Something so small and benign yet so important to so many people.

Does anyone know if an onscreen keyboard app is coming soon and also
if a developer sees this would you please take my suggestion into
consideration?  There's already mild disappointment out there in
internet blogosphere that there is no onscreen keyboard. This mild
disappointment will turn into complaints.
