The beauty of this is like so:


1. User pays same amount for 'capped' bandwidth regardless
2. "Developer" pays for their bandwidth - even though it doesn't really line the pockets of the user with any savings
3. "Developer" passes buck to users with higher prices/more ads.


Wham-bam, thank you ma'am.

Meh, at that cost ($9/mo?) - developers using it for non-android purposes will move away to a VPS. Giving the platform really just exclusivity for Android app makers for the publicity perks. The instance and bandwidth expenses are garbage compared to AWS.

I try to work my web-apps in the MVC style -- or at least the "VC" style. The browser is the view, the only thing it gets sent is data to display. It is fairly simple to through a debugger up and see exactly how the server API works, but it's also fairly simple to ensure your API is only servicing valid requests and all data is being validdated/escaped/etc.

For OCD purposes the quote from the movie is "My old pappy used to say 'He who fights and runs away can live to run away another day'" . It was "Bret Maverick". And in the end they had a line talking about how he always misquotes his dad.
