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?

 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

2. fiel download,, streams

Hey Guys,
i am from austria

i am developing android a few days now and startet to write an
application that gets a file from a server to display the content.

I have this code here

try {
            EditText myEditText =

            URL url = new URL("");
            HttpURLConnection http = (HttpURLConnection)
            BufferedReader rd = new BufferedReader(new
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            String line = "";
            while ((line = rd.readLine()) != null) {
                sb.append(line + '\n');
            String text = sb.toString();
            text = text.substring(1, 5);

        } catch (IOException ex) {
Logger.getLogger(MainActivity.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null,

The strange thing is that nothing is shown in the TextField. If I test
the code in a standard java project the printing  of the data (with
println) works correctly in the console. But when i run it on the
android vmachine nothing is shown. I got no more ideas left to proof
the code. Anyone has some advices for a newcomer?

Kindly Regards from austria ;) and happy developing
