Lots of posts today, lets add one more.
This is a post on #piracy, a warning and somewhat of a rant.
If it's to long only read the end.
I'm aware of the rampant piracy. I know most sources of cracked versions, read websites through google translate and occasionally decompile them to see what they changed. I don't like it and don't condone it, but i don't have the resources to do something against it.

This is not a huge company, this is just me and I'm not going to start loosing sleep over something like piracy. I currently can't complain about what i earn through app sales and it allows me to pursue app development with a lot more time. Most of you propbably know that i strife to offer good support and have been constantly improving and updating SD Maid for over 2 years. That has been possible because people who bought it.
The whole sales model wouldn't really be sustainable without the massive amount of android users, think about it, one time purchase, updates for years. Both SD Maid v2 and v3 have so many changes they could be released as sepperate apps.

A lot of awesome apps don't come from huge companies, but from individuals having good ideas and investing lots of time. While there are rumours that developers live of coffee, in reality they have to pay the same bills you do and if they can't do that by making apps, their time spend on developing apps has to be spend in a different profession/job that allows them to pay their bills. Of course there are also awesome free apps with awesome developers, but they don't live of coffee only either (besides coffee isn't free), they just get it from different sources. That could be a second job, writing that app being their job or ads. I don't like ads and try to avoid them, but it's a valid income source for many devs and if done right are not that bad.

Of course not everyone has the means or possibility to buy an app, whether it is due to payment methods, money or location. It doesn't bug me much if those get something for free and i very much just enjoy the feeling of knowing that a lot of people happily use my apps. "good feeling" is not an accepted currency though ;).

What angers me is if pirated versions increases my workload or tarnishes my reputation.
There are people who gave 1* ratings complaining about porn ads from SD Maid because they downloaded a modified version from some chinese website, it sounds unbelievable, but thats just one example. I don't want to spend time chasing down a bug that in the end turns out to be caused by SD Maid being modified.

There is no "crack proof" implementation unless you start moving code serverside which is pointless for an app like this. I've improved protection for a while and it increased the time for pirated versions to appear, but it's not permanent and most importantly, it is not fun. What is fun adding or improving features and getting good ratings, so I rather invest that time into improvements and email support and hope that people appreciate that and buy the app.

#READ THIS#
Most people don't realize the risk they put themself at when downloading pirated versions. If you grant an app root permissions, it superseeds everything. You can not use the "permission list" or what an "app ops"  like app displays. An app with root can give itself EVERY permission it wants.

#root "pm grant your.packagename android.permission.WHATEVER_YOUWANT"

If you grant an app root permission you can't base your trust evaluation on the permission list. Base it on reviews, interaction with the dev or look through the code if its open source.

All those people who download pirated versions grant root based on the trust they give the original developer, not realising that the app they just obtained from a 3rd party source can be modified in anyway possible, and now you granted it root. The door is not open, ITS OUT OF ITS HINGES.

This is not a root specific problem, but with root it's the most dangerous. Having internet permission and read_storage permission is already enough to upload every picture you have taken to a server somewhere in the world.

I'm not trying to cause paranoia and increase tinfoil hat sales, I'm just trying make people aware of some of the risks. (and let off some steam) ;).

(possible typos but somehow G+ sucks when typing long texts...)

Neue Zahlen zeigen, dass das Android Betriebssystem weiter Marktanteile gewinnt. Der Marktanteil von Android liegt seit dem zweiten Quartal 2012 bei knapp 60%. Die Verlierer sind Symbian und RIM. Das iOS Betriebssystem liegt momentan noch bei knapp 18% Marktanteil.

Die Zahlen verwundern nicht, bei 1,3 Millionen täglicher Aktivierung von Android Smartphones/Tablets. 

Wir sind gespannt auf die weitere Entwicklung des Marktanteils.

+Antonios Stergatos Im Business Bereich machen Web-Apps meiner Meinung nach schon noch Sinn - teilweise. :) Zu Android und iOS: Die Zahlen haben sich mittlerweile etwas angeglichen. Der Unterschied ist jetzt nicht mehr so groß. http://www.droid-life.com/2012/09/06/android-users-catching-up-with-ios-in-willingness-to-pay-for-apps/

Ich bin aber sehr gespannt, wie sich die Browser auf den Smartphones entwickeln wird und ob die Web Apps mal an das native Look-and-Feel rankommen. Web-Apps haben einen entscheidenden Vorteil: keine Restriktionen und keine Wartezeit durch die App Submission.

Ca. 50% aller Abmahnungen im Zusammenhang mit Stockarchiven, die mir unterkommen, liegt ein Verstoß gegen die "Copyrightangaben" zugrunde. Daher empfehle ich wärmstens diese Infografik, welche zeigt bei welchem Stockarchiv welche Angaben zu machen sind. Und falls Sie sich fragen, warum ausdrücklich auf Probleme bei der Bildernutzung in Social Media hingewiesen wird, empfehle ich meinen Beitrag: http://rechtsanwalt-schwenke.de/urheberrechtsverletzung-durch-verwendung-von-stock-fotos-auf-facebook/

Interessanter Artikel zur Strategie von Facebook. Zuvor hatte man auf eine hybride App gesetzt, die Teilweise in HTML5 und teilweise nativ entwickelt wurde. 

In Zukunft wird man aber voll auf die native Implementierung setzen, um die Performanz und die Benutzererfahrung zu verbessern. Mehr Infos im Artikel von Androidnext.de

Irgendwie verwirrend mit der Entropie... Etwas was man nicht messen kann, was man auch nicht wirklich erklären kann, aber was trotzdem Auswirkungen zu haben scheint...
