As much as I hate to say it, it's probably for the best. Cheers! -- Smug

Totally agree. The old adage, much used, less weeds in a walled garden

This is *excellent* news! We're starting to see Google move towards Apple's platform in many ways, first the S6, then Android Studio, and now this. There's no shame, both companies have taken from each other, I'm just glad that Google's stepping it up the direction Apple is going, should make things better for us, in many many ways, and for them too. Sweet post, Keith. David.

Seems from the article that they're promising faster review times than apple - hope this is the case

Probably good and bad at the same time, I'm sure they'll realize they can start charging a yearly developer fee also.

Arubaman - I'm not against a small annual fee if I get something quality in return. I hear you though. An annual fee helps keep things current, so many apps on Play that are stagnant, a wee token fee or lose them may help in the long run.
