The Chinese Android market only offers a limited number of Apps


The continuing censorship battle between Google and the Chinese government have taken on new developments, with the Android App store being blocked all across China!

This is the second time the Android App store has been blocked in China, the first was during 2009.

Gizchina News of the week

Many Chinese Android users are increasingly frustrated by the Chinese version of the official Android market as it doesn’t provide full access to the application stores full portfolio, and instead only offering censored or free applications for download.

This lack of content has forced many Chinese Android users to download pirated or hacked versions of paid apps as they are left with no legal way of obtaining them.

The recent block of the Android Application market may be due to the the increased tension between the Chinese government and Google, and could be the governments way of clearing the way for new Chinese based app store services.
