Hi,
when I started this project i wanted to make an appstore for Windows Mobile where everyone can upload and download apps without paying anything.
Now thats the result:

Whats the idea of the XDA Market?
There is already an appstore for Windows Mobile (MS Marketplace) BUT you have to pay money in order to publish your apps.
So I started developing the XDA Market. Everything here is for free. I want to give developers the possibility to get much user and much feedback, without paying.


Developers
-Upload your own apps for everyone without paying anything.
-Everyone can access and download your app without the need of a registration.
-Publish updates through xda market: Be sure everyone will get them.
-Detailed download statistic.
[-Custom url feature.]
Users
-Browse through apps for your device.
-Rate, comment and download them.
-Favorite apps and never miss an update.
-Share apps you like with the rest of the world

Working on
-Rom hosting feature
-Windows Phone 7 client
-PC client
---------------------------------------------------------
News
-Rom hosting feature will be added soon

!!Feel free to upload all freeware apps you found !!
The Download for the Client and much more can be found here:
Server BACK ONLINE !! !

WOW, nice idea also for the PC-side application/managment!
I believe you will check the apps uploaded prior to publish the content (to have the "right" content only) :p;)

Tried to download the file, but got Error 404: File Not Found. Did the server crash already? :D

Thanks for what appears to be a great tool, can't wait for devs to take advantage of it

For me everything is working :confused:
Do you mean the download link for the client ? it's working

I will check the content but not prior. It would take too much time and i already got not much time :p but i will add a "Checked" text to a app so you can see if this app is checked or not

    Is there any interest from the developers in continuing its development and, more importantly, getting its library filled up with what's out there?
    If there is, I'd be first in line for donating and in helping getting the library filled - but if it's pretty much abandoned, what's the point?
    I realize there's also the O!Market application, but that relies completely on the freewarepocketpc.net website with all of its quirks* - and is also rather lacking.
    .............................................................................
    Yes, I know WM is 'dead' - but the devices aren't, and the XDA Market would be a great way to get people with WM devices introduced to the myriad of apps out there without having to sift through pages and pages of listings or forum posts (as I'm currently doing. Did you know there's 19 screenshot apps?).

    I'd second this- I'm used to trawling at least 4 different sites, not to mention the forum pages here. It seems like there are some good apps which have been published/ continue to be in individual device forums, leaving people with other devices with no idea. I've found good stuff in the X1 Apps and Games thread for example, but I've got an HD2. I guess a stopgap solution is for anyone to give a heads up on the generic Apps and Games thread whenever they find anything which isn't yet on there. Being able to access this information on a mobile app store would be substatially better. As always thanks for the work that has been put into this project!
