Im wondering if i would be able to get an app from the marketplace and repackage it to delete the ads that appear i would like to do that to the windows 7 theme. I certainly have no problem buying the app for so cheap but google has limited payment options and im a kid and have no credit cards or anything to purchase it.

The app developer holds the copyrights to the app. It's their property. The market is just a way for them to get it to the public in one area. Just because you purchase an app doesn't give you the rights to do with it as you wish,as in repackaging it and so forth. you'd have to work with the developer on that.

yea well many ppl do it anyway there's hundreds of apps you have to pay for on the market and you can get them completely free online. I know you can repackage apps using the sdk and a apk tool program i just wanted to know if i could remove the ads and talking to the developer wouldnt do nothing ether way you have to buy the app on the market or apk and im not downloading apk's online because of risk of malware and stuff. They have a free version i just want to know if i could remove the ads manually

pirating software is not legal nor is it ethical. You won't get any help here in such endeavors. The ads are what makes the free version free. The developer is entitled to get paid one way or another.

if many people jumped off a bridge, would you still?

point is, just because people do it doesn't mean it's right. The ads help pay for all the work the developer put into the program. Or just to feed his/her wallet. Either way like it was said before, it's his app, and we don't support piracy, even if President Obama did it.

You are asking to repackage someone else's work that you paid for AND removing the revenue content.

Do you realize how many laws you break and lawsuits you open yourself up for doing this?
