Yea. Google is improving in terms of services and etc. Byr they atw certainly not near perfect. They need to make their services more international n public. Like play magazines, these gift cards and etc. They need to stop just limiting several services to to the us only
+Richard Surjadi I don't think they deliberately restrict to the US. Local laws and policies might need to be worked around first, I believe. You can't simply ship something to another country without permission or clearance..
Folks, I'm tired of the masses having to suck up to "Android," or "I-stuff." Not saying their bad products, but some of us ain't exactly,"swimming in money," now days. The devices are expensive for a lot of us, and so we are forced to be on the sidelines of the "App," world. Anyone else feel like they'er being herded into product markets, or else left out of the loop?
G'morning g+ what can I bring to the table today, so we can get opinions from some of you today? How about I am sick and tired of the christian population being attacked 'cause of the way they believe? What happened to " Tolerance", or is that only for all the other religions? Lets bring back the stupid people boycotting Chik A Filet, do they understand that the company or the owner does not discriminate, he has gay people working and eating at his establishments, People he has a right to his beliefs just as you do, so what the hell is your problem? Please give me your feed back on your religeous belief!!
+Mohamad Fairus =/ Who knows?!?!?! It's not even in US stores yet! And I'm sure as long as you can get a code, you can use it. It doesn't make sense to block gift cards just because it's not from the US. Your difficulty would be getting your hands on one such card.
+Richard Surjadi how in the world do you guys think these is Googles fault are that they are intentionally restricting services? When these services are announced its for the markets that are already to go and in other countries you have to not only deal with your government but partners as well which may restrict certain content and until an agreement is reached no one wins.
+Mohamad Fairus Oh that $25? I think you can use it once you proxy into the US. Although I'm certain you won't have to proxy just to spend the $25 they gave. I mean, after all, it's tied to your account right? I hope it'll work for you! Good luck!
If it doesn't.. well.. don't be sad. Google Play will eventually expand to Singapore. Or if you're going to the States for a holiday or work or whatever, remember you still have $25 to use :)
Gift cards stink. Only two things can happen - people are cheap so they spend most but not all the money. Free cash to whoever sold the gift card! Alternatively, the person getting the gift card has to fork over extra so they can use the entire gift card, which is kind of a letdown since it's supposed to be a gift card.
I hope I can buy some with PayPal. Instantly solving the problem of not being able to buy on the store with it. Google would probably have had over $100 from me in apps over the last 2.5 years, but because of no PayPal, they've had $0.
I hear alot of folks say they were afraid to give Google their credit card number. Why? Does that mean you never purchase anything online? NEVER! These cards seem to be a good idea but I was truly surprised at how many folks would NEVER use their credit card to buy things from the Play Store. Has there been a security issue I'm not aware of? Has anyone's card number ever been stolen? Is it not secure? Is the problem using your credit card number ANYWHERE online or is it specifically trusting Google with it? I'm curious.
Awesome. I know this will undoubtly be beneficial to those who do not have credit and/or are wary on using credit online. This will be beneficial for all. Consumers, developers and Google. But why did Google take so long ?
Yo Google i love the products you guys give but Plz make the content more accessible for your foreign buyers i am using android tablets for the past 3 years i just don't like apples but some how i feel limited with the new play store i click links and it tells me i cant access it in my country. if anyone out there have the same problems and feel the same plz say sum
