My Paid Apps tells you how much you’ve spent and what you spent it on

If we asked you right now how many apps you’ve bought in the past six months, how much you’ve spent all in all, and what those apps exactly are, would you be able to answer us correctly? Well, unless you’re one of those people who keep spreadsheets of all their expenses or you have great memory, you probably would only be able to name 1 or 2 apps. A new app simply called My Paid Apps can help you keep track and remind you that you bought this app you haven’t used lately.

Sudan was one of the few countries where the Google Play Store was not yet available, but now you can cross them off the list. Google announced that free games and apps can now be accessed by residents in the North African country.

Mexico, Slovakia, Indonesia receive Play Store carrier billing support

Paying for goods found in the Google Play Store has always been easy and convenient. You only need to enter your credit card information or you can also choose to receive a bill from your carrier. I prefer credit card payment because it's more widely used but some people prefer carrier billing. It actually makes sense because it can be easier to keep track of charges while credit cards can be more easily abused.

Razer’s Forge TV console shows up at the Google Play Store

You would think that it being called the Google Play Store, they would specifically offer only Google products, like say – the Nexus Player. But stranger things have happened, and right now we’re seeing Razer’s very own android TV gaming console being sold at the Play Store, even if it (kinda) competes with Google’s own (ASUS-made) Nexus Player.

Google Play now has a Free App of the Week system

To encourage more people to use the Google Play Store and maybe stop them from going to their default app stores like Samsung, Amazon, etc, Google has now started offering a free "app of the week". These apps may range from anything from a game to a launcher to a productivity app, all of which were previously paid but will be offered for free for a week. While it still doesn't top Amazon's free app of the day, anything offered for free is very much welcome for mobile users.

Google Play now shows “Family” Category

Google’s new app rating system now live on web, mobile

A few months back, Google told developers that there will now be a new app rating system, based on which region you submitted the app to. The questionnaire that they submitted will be reviewed by the appropriate body and then the app will be given a rating, depending on the standards of that region. Now that rating system has gone live, on the web version, and is still rolling out to the mobile version of Google Play Store.
