Android Developers: Deter Piracy with Automatic Application Licensing
May 7, 2010 5:21 PM –
KeyesLabs, developers of Screebl Android App for saving battery power, got fed up with their software being pirated (lately over 75% of new installs are pirated, on some days peaking as high as 90%) and did something about it since Google hasn’t! They have created the Automatic Application Licensing (AAL) for Android developers to share the library in converting pirates to patrons.
It works by linking mobile app licenses to purchase verification on the Android Market. The result is a very easy-to-integrate component for developers, a painless experience for users, and a serious stumbling block for would-be pirates. AAL will operate at a license cost structure; Single Application License for $24.99, Four Application License for $49.99 and Unlimited Application License for $99.99. If you’re an Android Developer curious about this technology the library is available for immediate download.
