Google outlines big Android Market changes, unhappy with lagging app purchases
In-app purchases can be a goldmine for developers, as some iPhone devs have discovered. Allowing Android app makers to hawk new add-ons, in-game gear and other virtual goods should be good for business. Although, as Engadget points out, it means fewer full-featured apps in the store, and more cheap or free apps with important features you have to pay to unlock.
Meanwhile, to help weed out bogus apps and highlight the best apps in the Market, Google will throw more human reviewers into the mix. Hopefully this should help developers get paid and give them an incentive to keep making good apps.
