    Hey guys,
    I have decided to post an application I have been working on. This app lets you share apps with anybody. I originally put this on the Android Market but they didn't like how easy it was to send anybody apps without any rules. From the original description:

    Send apps, not links!

    Using AppShare, you can send any app to anybody anytime! AppShare doesn't just send links like similar offerings, but sends real APK (Application) files to any other device in the world using a unique Access ID (assigned to you upon installation). It works similar to phone numbers - you select which application you want to send, type in your friend's Access ID and then press send. It's fast, easy and intuitive! Use AppShare for developing apps or sending your favorite apps to your friends.

    Optionally install apps without user interaction.

    AppShare uses PUSH technology so that it DOES NOT drain your battery! Please keep in mind that apps can take awhile to send/receive, even on 3G. Apps sent may take anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours to receive depending on many different factors.

    Decentralized servers are used, NO PERSONAL INFORMATION IS STORED. If you have questions about any of the permissions required to install, please contact the developer and he will be happy to explain any questions you have.

    Please contact the developer if you have any issues or questions about using AppShare and before leaving negative reviews!

    Have fun sharing (REAL) apps!

    RECENT CHANGES:
    4/29/2011 - Bug fixes
    4/25/2011 - Slight graphical improvements, quite a few bug fixes, upgraded logging.
    4/18/2011 - Fixed some bugs, allows those with root permissions to send data from app-private (this should be a rare occurrence because it is deprecated)
    4/18/2011 - Initial version release


    If you have any questions, please PM me. Thanks!

    Rules as in free distribution of paid apps?

    [edit]I didn't intend for the question to sound snarky. I'm just honestly curious if this app will allow somebody to send an app's .apk file even if it's a paid app. (and the dev didn't utilize DRM)

    Yup, that's exactly why. I have no way to protect which apps get shared so Google doesn't like it. It wasn't made to share paid apps, but it could potentially be used for that purpose. I understand Google's position on it, I just don't want the app to go to waste.
