Really? Why is that? I"m also an Android developer, so I'm curious why anyone would avoid the Play market.

Kindle, not available in their country, etc.

Kindle isn't really Android and doesn't use most of these features.

Countries that are not on Google Play usually have legal / export restrictions, do they not?

so what if they have legal / export restrictions, it shouldn't stop them from getting software

We have a lot of demand from users who aren't able to access our app on Google Play. There's a lot of devices out there without market access e.g. Kindle Fire and we get a lot of demand in countries which don't have Google Play e.g. Iran & China.
