1.It cost me 25$ to put it on the android market, if enough people click on the advertising i can get my money back.If i give the source, you can remove the ad.

2.It takes me a lot of time to write the source code, the application is working and do what he is supposed to do.If someone find a bug i can correct it very quick.

3.My database password(and some other information about my server) is in the source code, i can hide it but then you can not use a part of the code.

Why is it so important for you to have the source ?

I just got my android phone and started developing on it.
I think this could be a nice and simple application to learn from.

Not really an argument, Hellman and myself coded a huge Application for Regnum and naturally open sourced it.

I understand, myself i'm very new in the android world (~1 month) and it was a little hard to begin the time to understand how to write, specially if like me Java was not a language you know.

I have learn on some nice "hello world" tuto i found on different web site and have read "Beginning Android 2" in pdf (thanks rapidshare )

I would prefer to open source it because it go the way i think in genereal (i use linux....) and i have no problem to open source all my applications in perl.

But i'm not rich(it's hard for me to pay my apartment at the moment) and a lot of things are not free in this world, specially the entry to the android market.
I have write this application for the regnum community and just want to get my money for the entry back, it's the most important reason i have to don't open source it.

I know that a place on the android market was not really necessary but i think it's better and more simple for everyone. Users can find it fast and i can update it without posting here everytime "hey i have a update".

I hope you can understand my choice.

PS: for people who like this application, don't forget to give good rating, thanks.

You just gave me a compelling reason to avoid looking at your code. Are you really sure about putting your password in a public binary?
You should have made an API, so you can safely decouple your app architecture. You can change your backend, yet the API will behave the same way and end users won't notice. :P

I think its completely understandable if it cost you money, to not make it open source so you can recover your expenses.
Just putting it out there :P

I want to put it on the market so everybody can access it very easy.
If i open source it here it will just stay here, in the shadow of the forum.
It's more simple for all the way i choose

If you want i can open source exactly the same application for your pc in perl.

I want to make a REST API for map status, though I'm pretty busy right now (exams are coming and I have to hand in two projects tomorrow, plus a webapp to finish). Are you interested?
