(Update: Please readDownload Android Apps from other markets in 8 Steps if this method does not work for you)
While surfing the internet you may have seen some great apps for Android, but when you try to access them by searching Android Market or by scanning their barcode all you get is ‘The requested item could not be found’, and you feel so marginalized! Because the app you want to download is available on Android Market only in some limited countries. This post talks about how you can download apps that are not available for your country and how to download apps that are not available for your Android OS version.
Please note that using the method described here you may get to download and install the apps but they may or may not work depending upon your phone model.

New App idea! Looking for Android Developer

I am a Technology Consultant by profession and I am fascinated by Android. I have some creative Android App ideas but I am not so good at java so unable to make things work by myself.
That's why I am looking for a developer (Preferably from India) who can help me out with this thing. I cannot pay anything but just looking for someone who has the potential to develop Apps but still did not get any attention.

Why should you help me for free:
1. App's devloper section will have your name with me.
2. I guaranty that the App idea I have will be a hit.
3. There is no such application still in the Android Market.
4. You have got nothing to loose.

So if you have the zeal for developing android app and want to be famous (Yes, I believe my app idea is that good), Please leave a comment and we can then discuss things.

Thanks for reading!

Learn Android App Development with me! #1

I’ve been using Android phone from a long time (I Love it) and I feel that I have explored almost all the options configurations, settings, apps that it supports and does. But I still felt that something is missing, the Android Market still does not have the App that I really want on my mobile. So I thought of developing my own App that will have the functionality I want on my Android.First I started finding good books on Android development and other tutorials on the internet and then something popped up in my mind “Why not share my learning on internet?” Maybe there are some people on the planet who feels the same like I do, who are not professional developers, who just want to gain knowledge about current trends. At that point I decided to share my learning and progress and now I invite you to share yours with me too. I am novice and I just want to develop applications that I want to have on my Android. In this series I will be first exploring how and what of android development a…

Adding .cer certificates on your Android Phone

I have gone through a lot of pages saying that certificates problem with Android OS, how to use WPA2 Enterprise secured network on Android, how to add .cer files to android and many more. I have found solutions to some problems somewhere on the internet, but didn't found all the related information at a single place. So I thought of writing this blog entry dedicated to adding certificates for WPA2 Enterprise secured network.
Please note that I have a HTC Hero (GSM) which is having Android OS 1.5 (Yes I resisted myself from rooting it with 2.1, but the official update is coming soon). I will update this entry when I’ll get my hands on Android 2.1
