KeyesLabs Fights App Piracy with Automatic Application Licensing
KeyesLabs, makers of Screebl and Screebl Pro, have found their apps getting rather popular. Great news, right? Unfortunately, it’s not. Developer and founder David Keyes estimates that after nearly 100,000 downloads, roughly 70% of them are pirated copies. So, to combat this issue, KeyesLabs has created a new tool for developers called Automatic Application Licensing.
With one line of code, developers can insert a customizable validation tool to ensure apps are being purchased through the Android Market. At roughly 35kb, the library adds almost nothing to existing applications and gives the developer power over unlicensed copies. Want to kill access to the app completely? Go for it. Feel like letting them skate by just one more time? It’s up to you. The licensing is transparent to end users as it doesn’t require any usernames, passwords, or serial numbers.
The library is available for immediate download and developer evaluation from www.keyeslabs.com.
