Mr. Gemmell blamed Android’s open architecture for the app piracy’s main reason. According to him, using this open architecture, users are able to pirate apps on their devices without rooting or jail-breaking it first.

Gemmell wrote, “You search the internet for pirate copies of apps, then copy them onto your (regular, unrooted, non-’jailbroken’) device, and launch them, The system is designed for piracy from the ground up. The existence of piracy isn’t a surprise, but rather an inevitability.”

Gemmell has suggested Google that the search giant needs to control Android app store to some extent to make it more hard for users to steal software. Else, the app developers will loose their interest on this platform.

Gemmell also asserted, “The third factor is the software ecosystem. It’s about whether or not, when I pick up the handset and decide I want to do something, there’s an app for that. To have apps, you need developers. To have developers, you need enthusiasm and an investment of time and talent. Enthusiasm and effort can be driven by many motivations, but the most reliable and consistent of those is money. Yes, there it is: the m-word. It’s not a dirty word. You wouldn’t have your shiny handset without it, not because you wouldn’t have been able to afford it, but because it wouldn’t exist.”
