In-App Billing Goes Live on Android Market
Finally, the Android Market got what the iTunes App Store has for quite some time now, in-app billing. Google has just turned-on the switch and enabled this feature. For Android apps developers this means that you will now be able to publish your Android apps and Android games in-app billing, while for us Android phone users can now make purchases within the Android apps.
Better yet, for developers you can now make your games available for free download on the Android Market and then bank on earning from these Android apps through try-and-buy, virtual goods, upgrades and other billing models. For us Android users, this means we’ll have more free games to try out and play and then later on decide if we are willing to spend for upgrade to enjoy premium features.
To make it more interesting for you, you’d be glad to know that some great games have already enabled in-app billing for their Android apps and android games. These include the just released Tap Tap Revenge 4, Gun Bros., Dungeon Defenders: First Wave Deluxe and more.
So there you go folks. Prepare your credit cards and hopefully you won’t go beyond your Android apps and games budget.
