Aren't they even censoring the Net?

Letting proxy sporting Apps into that, to name only one facet seems kind of odd?

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for it.
All censorship is wrong. But I just wonder why their government would allow this. 
 
Developers can refer to General License D or 31 CFR §560.540 if they are concerned about any sanctions issues; they can also email me at collin@averysmallbird.com[not legal advice]. They is help out there if people want to help Iranians connect.
 
My app is free, but "Iran" is currently crossed out and unable to be checked.
 
tnx <3 <3

We appreciate it and also wish that you allow us to buy priced app
Thanks a million
 
This is great news for Iranian people. now they don't need to use 3rd party markets or sideload the apps which causes lots of problems and malware infection. Thx Google.
 
I'm leaving you Google soon for Your policy about Iran
 
I hope peace and happiness without any sanctionsfor Iranians
 
+Majid Daei Nejad Check out "Laws Of Power" - http://bit.ly/WFzIQ0 I haven't been able to update it in a while because of other projects, but I'm trying to put something together because next month it would have been in the Play Store for a year.
 
Please open google app engine hosted websites to iran as well
 
why don't you make this a default option for all free apps ? so if a developer don't want Iranian user to use his app they can remove the permission

This is a great step in the right direction in correcting the wrong that has been done by companies, and especially digital companies boycotting Iran much more than required or suggested by any national or international law for countless years.
The Internet is supposed to be a neutral place, not driven by politics.
We thank Google, but as Malcom X says, you can't drive a knife into a man's back nine inches, pull it out six inches, and call it progress.
We hereby request that Google as a technology leader  aid the much oppressed and innocent people of Iran and set an example by removing ALL digital sanctions against this country, except the ones which are explicitly required by law.
Why should there not be access to Google code in Iran? Why should there not be access to GAE in Iran? 

As a side note, we remind you that proxies exist and all tech. aware people are perfectly able to use them. Such sanctions just come across as annoying and hinder people who are not very tech savvy.
 
YES! FINALLY! No "thank you" needed! but good work! no to racism:)
 
This is awesome news
thank you google .....
 
Thank you Google Thank you but We can't download from Google play ; I wish this is for short time . ( Sorry for my dictation mistake )

 
I'm not currently an Android user, but this move is certainly appreciated. Maybe this will make me an Android user in the near future.
I hope that Iranians can use more of Google's services such as Google Code without the 403 error getting in their way!
 
Tnx tnx a lot of thanks google I love you :-)

Thanks Google
but I guess the hostage taking and interests, access to technology is something immoral. In accordance with the laws of the United States, perhaps the possibility of monetary, financial and Exchange application download directly from inside Iran must stay closed, but why should people download a free application from the country also denied the same right to appear and then they score?
 
thank you so much pleas open play store i have galaxy s3 but i dont give of google play

Hello Google Please remove error 403 for users of iran

 
+Mojtaba Allamy It's actually developer-related from now on. It'll take a while for them to add Iran to their list.
 
Great news for us and my Nexus 4 : D. tnx Google.
 
+Vahid Lazio 

منظورم این بود  وقتی 99% برنامه های گوگل پلی رو مارکت های ایرانی از کافه بازار خز شده گرفته تا مایکت و پلی استور و حتی مارکت های خارجی معتبر مثل 1mobile  و غیره  به راحتی در دسترس قرار می دهند و اتفاقا حتی خیلی هاشون رو میشه مستقیم دانلود کرد از طریق پی سی حالا این وسط اومدن گوگل پلی هیچ اهمیتی نداره. بودنش خوبه اما دلیل این همه خوشحالی رو نمی فهمم اما چرا می فهمم. ما ایرانی ها عادت داریم جـــــــــوگیر باشیم. عادت داریم به مرگ بگیرن به تب راضی شیم. عادت داریم حق خودمون رو بگیرن چه در داخل کشور و چه در خارج کشور و بعد ندهند یا کمی بدهند عنان کار از دستمون خارج بشه. گوگل یا هر شرکت دیگه تو دنیا بیجا می کنه حق دسترسی عادی ر از مردم کشوری بگیره و بعد با منت آزادش کنه اونم ناقص. من لینک بخشی از سایت هایی که به راحتی می تونید همه برنامه های گوگل پلی + تازه تر رو ببینید و دانلود کنید رو این جا می گذارم تا سایر دوستان هم ازش استفاده کنن.. لطفا همیشه همه حقیقت را ببینید نه بخشی از آن را. مرررررررررررسی

which means it's not still available in iran
thanks for CHEATING us

Neither Play Store nor Web Store currently work in Iran. In both cases "error 403" is shown.
 
google play support center replied me about 403 error but i don't know what's the problem!! :

Thanks for contacting Google Play Support. I'll be happy to address your concerns and do everything I can to resolve the issue you're experiencing. We're excited to hear from our users from all over the world. At this moment, Google Play isn't available in Iran. Please be assured that we are working hard to make Google Play available more widely, but since this requires a lot of negotiations with various teams (legal, content, etc.), I don't have an official timeline for when this might happen.
