(BannedAppMarket) promises to give customers the opportunity to decide what they want on their mobile device, not Apple. It also accepts banned Android apps.

The site will be a commerce and exchange center for all apps that have been “challenged, removed or not accepted by Apple's App Store and Android app marketplaces,” say its founders.

Good idea for Apple devices, pretty much everything that Google have banned has either been viruses that you wouldn't want anyway, or illegal.

Agree. There might be interesting iOS apps, and imho Cydia can use some competition. It's a bit messy ;)

As long as they keep it legit this is a great idea. Many third party "markets" for Android have lots of full featured apps free of charge (does not seem very legit to me).

No, ctpahhik, this will be legit. It's for devs to find a place for THEIR apps that were rejected (such as last year's wikileaks apps etc)...they won't be all free.
Of course...we'll see how abuse-proof the system will be :p

Porn apps. There's money to be had there. Loads of it.

You have a sad, but true, point. None of the mainstream app stores allow pornographic apps, the big brand porn companies could make an absolute killing.

Yes, we need an Android porn app with permission to access your phone book :P TouchWiz gets a totally new meaning, too ;)

Just don't let your TouchWiz fiddle with your Sense...god knows what might happen ;).
