BTW, Android Paid-For Apps Are Go in Your Country!

After lots of stop-go-stop-go, users in most countries can now access Android paid-for apps from the Android Market. The announcement was made relatively quietly at the Google I/O developer conference a few days ago, and the news has garnered suprisingly little attention.

[NOTE: Shoppers in most new countries, apps are paid for by credit card in dollars)

The full list of countries (from Androidpolice.com, the link on Google’s site keeps disappearing) is posted below. Pic snapped at the event by AndroidCentral.

The Market also gets some new features, including a better Top App chart, Editor’s Choice for top picks, Top Developers profiling the writers of the best stuff, better ‘related apps’ for improved recommendations, and Trending apps so you can see what’s hot and follow the crowd.

In related news, in-app payments are now possible using the Google In-App Payments API, opening the door for app developers to make continuing revenues, or provide billable services from within their apps.
