I know its inevitable that China will hack stuff. I guess my position is that we developers have a first movers advantage and can at least try to get in early and make a few bucks in China before our stuff gets hacked, rather than do nothing, make no money, and still get hacked.
My game now exists legally in both the Lenovo store and the Samsung store. The Samsung store is totally out-performing the Lenovo store, but still not nearly as good as the Google Play store. The Samsung store has a strict 10 day review period, before your app can exist in their store. There are no hacked copies of anything in the Samsung store and so that is why I think my app is performing better there. In the Lenovo store, everybody has already played the hacked copies of my game and have no interest in playing the legal copy.

On an unrelated (but entertaining) note...
I happened to be watching a tv show the other day called "Jungle Gold", where these two Americans pre-arrange with a local tribe chief to do some gold mining on his land in Ghana, Africa. When they arrive in Ghana, the mining location is already overrun by Chinese gold miners who are toting guns. The Americans say to the tribe chief "you promised us that we could do gold mining on your land, and we paid you money already to reserve your land, why are all these Chinese guys here instead?". The chief said "there was nothing I could do, the Chinese just showed up with guns and told me they are going to start mining my land!".

Everyone can do gold mining. All you need is a metal detector for gold.

Well, started receiving some crash report on google analytics and found out my game was on some chinese stores.
Here's the interesting part, seems they can't play the game. As far as I can tell they are stuck without getting to the menu. The apk seems not altered, same byte count as the original.
I've put a check for google play services when the game starts, maybe this is preventing the game to continue?
Has anyone got any experience on this?

Traktor Digger 2 finally got accepted into the Samsung App Store after a 10 day review process. It was instantly placed in the Puzzle Top New chart at position #6 !!! ...even though it had zero downloads. It must be a human decision as to what's the initial position on the chart.

Anyway I suggest you all make sure you get your games into the Samsung App Store for extra visibility.

Hi Guys,
So by now we have pinpointed most of china's markets, but for the past few days, I am getting downloads+crash reports(missing GP services) from INDIA.
Google Analytics shows all downloads coming form india, and the devices are GIONEE a made in India manufacturer.

Does anybody knows about a third party market or webpage/facebook sharing apks in India?

I've been trying to get my game into chinese app stores, but have been having some difficulty. Googling the problem has lead me here. This thread has been extremely helpful, but there's one thing I just can't get round.
It seems most chinese app stores require a valid phone number to register, but my number (with UK country code) is always deemed as being in an incorrect format. I've tried every variation, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas of what I can do? Any help is greatly appreciated :)

But don't they use the number to send a confirmation code?
