Hi, I want that my app created in AppGameKit tier1 must be linked to a device (a smartpho or tablet android).
I was thiking to link the app controlling the mac address of the device, there is a mode to read mac address in AppGameKit ?
so when app start , read the mac address and verify it with mac address saved in app . if different exit app
or if non possible read the mac address, can help me to find a new way ?

You could look into commands like running these commands at the start of the app.

GetDeviceIP
GetDeviceBaseName
GetDevicePlatform

If its first time you run the app then store the data coming from these commands

so any future runs of the app after its first run- and each one doesn't match up then the app is playing on the wrong device - so immediately stops the app from running

Good luck

Call the file "LEVELDATA.DAT" to store this informtion in, so that if anyone takes the app off one device onto another - they will probably copy this file across too - cause it looks remarkably like some level setup infomation and important
to be kept with the app.
