|MarketAccess.apk||1.0.6||40KB||22 July, 2010|
This Android application emulates the SIM card of the chosen operator and makes paid apps accessible in the Android Market. You need it if you want to buy apps and games from Market, but Market is not (yet) available in your country or for your operator.
In case you already have rooted device, but su is not available or doesn't work properly, it's recommended that you install the new versions of the su binary and the Superuser.apk.
Download and flash the latest version from XDA Developers.
When the Superuser asks for MarketAccess shell permissions, make sure to choose Always Allow or Remember.
Why a rewrite?
The original application contains ads and reports usage with Google Analytics eating the traffic which is rather expensive here. First I wanted to just disable these features, but while looking through the code I found it not so good. A lot of duplicate copy/pasted code in different classes, bad design, unused resources wasting device space, unused methods and even classes. There is also an update service checking for new versions on every start, even when application already supports updates via aTrackDog, so this functionality is duplicated. I was new to Android development and wanted to try my skills in perfecting some existing application.
So what did you change?
Any other features planned?
Yes, here is the short TODO:
Can I donate?
Please donate to the original MarketEnabler developers instead.
What about the sources?
The source code is available in the official repository of the MarketEnabler in the MarketAccess branch.
Where can I report bugs or request features?
Please use the MarketEnabler issue tracker with the MarketAccess label.
How do I know about the new releases?
Install and use aTrackDog.
