General Development Application stores are growing everywhere like mushrooms. While users have initially embraced application stores because of the ease they offer with application installation, developers have several complaints. Division of profits from paid application and ineffectiveness of the screening process are among the major issues. Are application stores the best distribution channel possible? Can they satisfy both developers and users?

an irritation when other party dictates what you can and can't do with your own device.

Please, stop spreading this mantra everythere.

Hardware is yours, but software is NOT. It is under license. Only if you write YOUR 100% OWN FIRMWARE, you may say what the entire working device is actually YOURS.

App Store ISN'T YOURS. Also the pirated software you installed is NOT YOURS.
