How to create Add On Packages

 I have seen several applications that are free, but allow for add on
packages to be installed.

Gang Wars sells Respect Points
Mafia sells Favors
Dungeon Quest sells Gems

The central game is a free app, but you purchase these add on apps for
in-game benefit.

Has anyone purchased one of these add on apps?  What is the experience
like?  Do you have to leave the add on installed on your phone?

How does this work technically?  Do you think they set shared
preferences?  How would you handle the 24 hour uninstall rule?

I am considering releasing a free game with 10 levels, but offering a
full set of levels (say 25) as a separate paid app.  I'm looking for
the best way to accomplish this and thought the above might have some

Thanks for your time,

 No answers in a month. Doesn't anyone know something about how these
apps work?

1. Google Devel Phone 2 (Google Ion) sane as HTC Dream?

I downloaded the HTC Dream source code... trying to find out if the
mic preamp has a lo pass filter thats adjustable. I can grab mic
samples of some whooooshing noise wchich I assume goes on up past
16khz at least, using audiotrack, but when I plot the output of a bp
filter from say 8-16khz, there's nuthin there. So anyone know if
there's a 'lofi' and a 'hifi' setting for the mic and how to change
it? Thanks.


2. 1.5 Not finding image resource!

I have an app that when run on 1.5 throws the following exception
every time it tries to set an image:

Resource not found exception blah blah blah

caused by: Java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: width and height must
be > 0

The image is being pulled from a drawable-nodpi folder, and all the
dimensions are either wrap content or fill parent. I have no idea
where it is getting values lower than zero.

Is there something I am missing or what? Also the image I am trying to
pull is a 9patch image, though I am referencing it the same way in
another application just fine...
