Hello everybody.

Nice idea the one of the repo. I'm interested in the procedure for adding the apps too, I was going to ask about it when I've red the answer. Anyway I have some more questions. First, about nasty apps doing something hidden, what I know is that when you install an app, usually you can see which kind of permission it requires, but if it just asks to use network, how can I know if it will do anything dirty? :-P Or is it there a permission blacklist to look at?

Second question is: I own a Freerunner with android cupcacke (for the moment), then the apps I have are tested just on android on freerunner 1.5: following the previous rules, are als apps for that version elegible to be included in the repo?

Thank you
