Google tweaks Play store policies blocking external app updates

Google made changes to its Play store policies this week that are aimed at preventing applications from updating without going through the official Google approved methods.

Google+ sign-in process adopted by Janrain and Gigya

Google+ sign-in was announced a short while back. You have likely seen a few examples of this on sites, however for those who may have missed it, Google+ sign-in is not all that different from what we have seen with Facebook and Twitter.

Symantec details Google Play Store one-click billing fraud

The latest Google Play Store horror story seems to have arrived. Symantec has recently begun to share details of a one-click billing scam. The silver lining here, this issue does not appear like it will affect all that many. You see, while serious, there are only roughly 200 apps that seem to be included. Not to mention, they appear to be limited to Japan. Of course, this should give a bit of caution for users elsewhere though.
