If you are a consumer…the title makes you cringe slightly as no one likes to part with their hard earned cheese. If you’re a developer all you can see is big fat dollar signs in your eyes. For the developers, a whole range of possibilities will now come with economic rewards…apparently, people aren’t afraid to buy apps, and lots of them as Apple’s App Store has already proven. Next week it becomes Android’s turn. Until now, all of the Marketplace apps were required to be free by Google. Not a bad thing by any means, however it probably hampered developers in the sense that the more “serious” developers held out developing the downright jaw dropping apps until money started flowing in because it’s what they do for a living. People can’t work for free ya know! The US and UK are first up on the list of countries that will have access to the paid apps in the Marketplace with Germany,Austria, Netherlands, France, and Spain will join the party a little later in March. So Androiders, are ya excited yet?
