Android Market should stimulate Open Source Applications

Feb 16, 2010, 22:33 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to guzzi333 for this link. ]

"Since Android is built on Open Source I think Google should actually stimulate developers to make their applications Open Source. Open Source could have a specific section type like Paid and Free have now.

"For Google this is also good because with open source multiple people can start contributing to apps such that they can improve faster. Furthermore people can start new projects by simply reusing open source code of other Open Source Android applications. All in all it will spur innovation and improve quality of applications and in the end that's good for Google because the platform will become more popular.

"Furthermore it fits in the Google policy that they stimulate Open Source."
