Ads on Google Play You'll soon start seeing app development houses promoting their apps in the form of adverts on Google Play.

This is going to do one of two ways and I'll be sitting on the side that isn't all that bothered. By the looks of it Google have implemented it very well and that will be the key.

Google Play reaches more than 1 billion people on Android devices in more than 190 countries. With such an extensive reach, Search Ads on Google Play can provide consumers new ways to discover apps that they otherwise might have missed

Any developers out there who haven't yet seen the news or indeed if anyone else is interested take a look at the AdWords website here - http://adwords.blogspot.co.uk/?m=1

Companies like Booking.com and Nordeus are already extending their app promotion strategy to include showing ads on the Play Store.

Moto G 3rd Gen Sim Free

There are lots of retailers selling the Moto G 3rd Gen SIM free but one thing they aren't selling is the ability to make the Moto G 3rd Gen your own by choosing the colours and even the start screen.

Via the Motorola website you get a load of different options including:

- Black or White for the front
-10 different colours for the back
-10 different accent colours
- 5 different shell colours (24.99 each)
-  Engrave it with your nickname or other
-  Choose the memory size from either 8GB or 16GB

Most of the websites selling it are doing so at around the £160 mark but when you add shipping on top of that you're be looking at about £170 and that is for just the Black or White with 8GB of storage.

You can get the 8GB Moto G 3rd Gen direct from Motorola with all of the above options plus free shipping. The current price for the 8GB Moto G £rd Gen is £179 with free shipping. You can also get 3% cashback and £10 off simply by using Quidco.

Using Quidco will also drop the price to £169 so not only are you getting a super phone that is amazing value for money, you're also getting a little back in your pocket.

Should you opt for the 16GB version it'll drop to £199 all in via the Quidco method.

The Quidco link is here -  http://goo.gl/RLaZps - and make sure that you go through to the Motorola website to complete and get the discount and cashback.

Use Google Now with Viber and more Saying OK Google to whizz off a text, email or Hangout Message. All very handy but if you're using Whatsapp or the likes of Viber you still had to bash away at your devices screen.

Rolling out now is support for Whatsapp, Viber, WeChat, Telegram and NextPlus. All you need is the latest version of the Google app and the messaging app.

For now only English is supported for now with support for other languages will be added in the near future.

Wish Motorola were doing the next Nexus That Moto Play sounds like a cracking phone. It comes with a 21MP camera, a 5.5 inch and a  3,630mAh battery. You can get a full list of specs from the Motorola website here - http://goo.gl/4TV4rZ - plus you'll be a to use the Moto Maker to make it uniquely yours and have it in your hands come August.

Next up the Moto X Style. Here you have a 5.7 inch screen, zero shutter lag when using the 21 megapixel camera and 3GB of RAM with either a 32GB or 64GB storage option. There are plenty more specs and would find those on the Motorola website here - https://goo.gl/gCIXTw - and it can be yours come September. 

The ever popular Moto G had a new look. They've always been one of the handsets that wipe the floor of the competition when it comes to value for money.

This time round you can as with the Play and Style take to the brilliant Moto Maker to give your Moto G 2015 the personal touch. Specs for this include the option to build your own with either 8 or 16GB of storage. 

The 8GB will set you back a mere £179 and the 16GB will set you back £209. Before you do buy from elsewhere it might be worth noting that here in the UK via Quidco you can 3% cashback plus a £10 off voucher on any order over £75 plus free postage. To take advantage of that offer click here - http://goo.gl/RLaZps - and make sure you do before 30 September. The code applies to any purchase so not just to the Moto G. It will also need to be done from a desktop.

You can even use the Moto Maker if you go to the likes of Three to buy a Moto G. simply buy a Moto Maker Pin Card and head to the Moto Maker website. 

Other specs include a 5 inch display, 13MP camera and 4G. Other specs and how to go about making yours yours can be found on the Motorola website here - https://goo.gl/TigfTO .The Moto G is available today.

All three handsets will be clutter free so you'll have as close to Android as you could get. Expect details on pricing hopefully soon.

Peppa Pig and the New ‘GOLDEN BOOTS’ app

Fans of the phenomenally successful kids’ TV show will be delighted with the launch of a brand new Peppa Pig app this summer. Ideal for pre-schoolers it should keep your little ones entertained after all their homework is done and they have been outside for some fresh air.

Brought to you by Entertainment One (eOne) and developed by Kids Industries, this new app features much-loved characters and all the fun from eOne and Astley Baker Davies’ award-winning pre-school TV show. Inspired by the recent 15 minutePeppa Pig special episode entitled ‘The Golden Boots’ this app lets young players join Peppa on a day of adventures across land and into space to find her missing golden boots!

 Join Peppa and her friends on their favourite activities including:

          Dress Up Peppa  Dress Peppa up in some of her favourite clothes and design her some brand new wellington boots, ready for a day of adventures together!

-          Muddy Puddle – Children can get creative as they experiment splashing in muddy puddles and drawing in the mud - there might be some creatures hiding inside waiting to be discovered. All the fun of a muddy puddle without the mess!

-          Space Adventures – Fly Peppa’s rocket safely through space safely past Saturn and then onto the Moon. There are lots of stars to collect along the way but look out for the planets, ice rocks and spiky mountains, which will get in your way and slow you down!

          Miss Rabbit’s Gift Shop  Visit Miss Rabbit on the Moon, she’s been waiting for visitors at her gift shop for a very long time! There are a few special things from the shop that Peppa and her friends need the players help to find.

          Feed the Ducks  At Peppa’s house, she and George are getting ready to go and feed the ducks but they need your help to prepare some tasty food, the ducks just love to eat! When you’ve chopped up your duck cake into bite-sized pieces take it down to the pond and feed them to the ducks.

-          Muddy Puddles Song: Sing along to the Muddy Puddles Song with Peppa and her friends!

You can pick it up from Google Play via the link below for £2.99.

Android news for the UK, all things Android in the UK
Introduction
UK based Android blog hoping to bring all the news for Android users here in the UK. You won't find us on a website, after a trial with Google + we have decided to use what has to be a more fun, interactive and easier way to post. Most of my 'blogging' will be done using nothing more than a Nexus 7 3G tablet, great for posting on the go and takes full advantage of all the services Google has to offer. I may also use the super Nexus 4 to add content,
