Any Android developer would agree that there is only one major flaw with Google’s current developer console – it’s lacking ability to give developers a snapshot of their application’s performance.

Every time you purchase an app from Google Play, Google sends your email address, your suburb, and in many cases your full name to the app’s developer.

Amazon has today announced that its in-app purchasing service, which is already available on the company’s Kindle Fire tablet and other Android devices, is coming to Mac, PC, and web games. This will allow developers to take advantage of Amazon’s service on those platforms to provide their customers with a new way to purchase additional content using their credit card or virtual Amazon currency.
