If requested, Do the programmer/s share the source code of Mobile apps designed & developed by them and which are freely downloaded from Google Play?

Example :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=autocallschedule.covayurt.com.autocallschedule&hl=en

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

When the app is submitted, Google doesn't gain access to the source code. The only person who knows the source code is the company that made the app. Keep in mind that apps use many native functions of the operating system. For example, in your previous question, the function "DAIL" (for example), would be native to Android, and the source code to that be available for everyone since it's free source. That doesn't mean you would have to create tons of functions of your own to make it functional.

Thanks.

Will the App developer if requested share the programming source code to the consumer who has downloaded the app from Google Play?

In this case I am the consumer who has downloaded the app from Google Play.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=autocallschedule.covayurt.com.autocallschedule&hl=en

Will Canberk Ovayurt (App developer) share the source code for his Auto call scheduler to me?

If he doesn't share the source code to me for his app developed, What could be the reasons?

Note : It's a freeware mobile app.

Thanks & Regards,

I doubt the coder would show their code to anyone. Because then it could be replicated easily. Google will not ask for the source code. It can't be touched if there's a licence on it, otherwise you could sue.

Yes it's free to use, but it can easily be monetized by the author, generating a source of income. If he/she shared it with you, you or anyone else can easily steal it and make it your own. Furthermore, most app developers work for a larger company; there are few loan wolves out there these days

Thank you.

If I am ready to pay Canberk Ovayurt in Turkish Lira for the Call Dialer Scheduler app source code, will he sell to me at a cost ?

I would ask the developer if the source code is for sale. You might end up paying >1000$ though.

Ask though, it might be cheaper
