Charge for Apps (What will Happen?)

 What happens to free apps when Android opens up the "paying"
marketplace?  In other words, if my app is free and I want to change
it to "charge" , what will happen?

Will all users who have the free app be able to use it still?

Also, has anyone tried the current 3rd party "pay" sites that let you
charge for your Android Apps?

Do they work well?



Charge for Apps (What will Happen?)

 No plans on the implementation of charging have been released.

The Marketplace T&Cs state you can't charge for content users have 
obtained for free, so the user who have the free apps will still have 
the free apps and any attempt to charge for them will probably see your 
Market account suspended.

If you're looking to use a 3rd party payment system with Market you'll 
most likley see your application suspended

1. Testing on-boot services.

I'm using Eclipse on windows to do my Android development and I want
to test / debug some code that runs on Android startup.  I have setup
my program to receive the BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast intent (which is
working) and from there it launches a service that runs in the
background on the device indefinitely.

The problem I'm having is that when I debug my application by clicking
"Debug As Android Application" it boots up Android and then after
bootup is complete it installs my program and then attaches the
de{*filter*} to it.  Of course, this isn't much use to me since my program
does things that I need to debug at Android bootup, before the updated
version of my program is installed (at bootup it runs the previous
version I tried to debug) and no de{*filter*} is yet attached to it.

So the question is, how do I setup the de{*filter*} to install and attach
my program *before* BOOT_COMPLETED intent is sent out?

In a worst case scenario I can change the intent it listens for to
PACKAGE_ADDED or whatever it's called but I would really rather test
and debug the real code and not a contrived test case.


2. How to see the content of database on G1


i hook up my G1 to my laptop and open a 'adb shell'. But as I execute
the command 'cd /data/data', I get an error 'opendir failed,
Permission denied'

$ adb devices
List of devices attached
HT853GZ21556    device

$ adb shell
$ cd /data/data
$ ls
opendir failed, Permission denied

I tried to cd the the right directory and then do 'sqlite3 <mydatabase>.db'

How can i dump the content of the database on a real device?

Thank you.
