Kongregate makes triumphant return to Android Market after a few tweaks

After Google's uncharacteristic (and swift) action against Flash game clearinghouse Kongregate when its Android app went live a few days ago, it wasn't clear what was going to have to happen to get it back in the Market -- but they're giving it a shot today by making a few key tweaks and republishing. Most notably, version 1.1 no longer dumps Flash games that you download to SD storage; instead, the phone's browser cache is used just as for any other website you visit, which would seem to be a definitive step toward giving the app less of an "app store" feel -- precisely the thing that Google's concerned about. We'll have to wait and see whether this puppy stays deployed... but for now, you can grab it from the Market.
