XDA Market – A Completely Free App Store
XDA member davidgiga presents this magnificent application for Windows Mobile devices. This app allows you to upload and download apps for free (note that it’s not an officially-supported XDA app). The host site from the developer is new and there are no applications available yet. As with any market, this will work when a lot of people starts using it and upload apps to the site.
