Android Adds In-app Subscriptions to Google Play; Allows Users to Carry Their Subscriptions Across Other Platforms

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Android has announced that it has added in-app subscriptions to the Google Play appstore, a payment model that will benefit periodicals such as news and magazines. One important feature of Google Play’s implementation is that it also allow developers to offer their users the ability to carry their subscriptions across other platforms, such as on their websites. This is made possible through the provision of a HTTP-based RESTful API that will allow developers to query subscription statuses of their users.

Android Market Website Launched – Install Apps on Your Phone Directly From Your PC

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Previously, the only way to search for Android apps on the Android Market is through your mobile phone. Clearly, one major shortcoming is the small screen, which made it a real pain, not only in viewing the screenshots and reading the text, but also having to scroll up and down to view the list of apps. Google unveiled Android market website to address just that.

Vs viewing apps on your phone:

Viewing apps on the phone

In addition to just discovering new apps from your PC, you can also purchase or download apps from Android Market website and send these to your phone. Your previous activities on Android Market on your phone would have already registered your phone to your Google Android account and you should not have to set any connfigurations. To install apps from your PC, click on the “Install” button on the app. Android Market website would then check if the chosen app is compatitble with your phone:

Checking compatibility

If your phone is incompatible, then you won’t be able to install the app:

Phone not compatible

Otherwise:, you should be able to install the app.

Phone is compatible

Clicking on the “Install” button does not actually “send” the app to your phone. It probably just triggers your phone to download and install the app. Note that the installation on your phone does not happen immediately, it took my phone at least 20 min before the app got installed.

Android Market Overhauls GUI; Reduces Refund Window

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Android Developers Blog have announced that they’ll be rolling out a new version of the Android Market client to all Android phones running version 1.6 and above over the next 2 weeks.

In addition to GUI changes, there are also other important policy changes, such as the increase of the max .apk (Android Package) size from 25 MB to 50 MB; expect to see richer games and applications.

However, the refund window will be reduced drastically from the current 24 hours to 15 mins! Though I had felt that 24 hours was too long and unfair to developers, 15 min may be a little too short. Sometimes I’ll let my phone download the apps while I do something else, and only return to test downloaded app half an hour later.

GUI changes
