Nexus 7 on Android 4.2 having problems updating Google Play apps?
Wednesday 14th of November 2012
In case you own a Nexus 7 tablet then you probably know that Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is already available for the device and can be installed immediately, which you probably already did as soon as the update came out.But it looks like Android 4.2 isn’t flaw-free and an issue has already been spotted by the guys over at Droid-Life. Apparently Nexus 7 users may run into problems when trying to update their Google Play apps after upgrading to Android 4.2However, the problem seems to have an easy fix, as discovered by other users that have experienced the app update error. If you have encountered the same annoyance, you’ll only have to remove your Google account, reboot the tablet and then setup your Google account again. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to update your apps just like before.How is your Nexus 7 Android 4.2 experience so far. Do you have any issues to report?
23 of the top 500 Google Play Apps are Malware; 580% overall increase
Saturday 27th of October 2012
Getting a virus on one’s machine is always cause for concern. They can do some nasty stuff such as crashing computers, stealing personal info, and just being an all around nuisance. People often go to great strides to avoid getting one.In the Android world, Malware has been on the increase in recent years as the platform has gotten more powerful and more apps have been released. How much has it increased exactly? According to TrustGo, 23 of the top 500 Google Play apps are considered high risk. Malware over all is up 580%.The interesting statistic is the 23 apps in the top 500 over at the Google Play Store. What qualifies as high risk, exactly? An example of what TrustGo considers high risk is applications like Talking Tom Cat Free. In the Infographic below, you can see that Talking Tom Cat Free jacks your phone number and sends it to a third party. That’s a big no-no, Talking Tom Cat. That app alone has had 50 million downloads since its release.These high risk apps aren’t dangerous on the face of them. For instance, your phone probably won’t get hacked, your

I'm getting error 491 whenever I try to download a purchased app from Google Play. I Googled for solutions but only found something about removing proxies which I can't find on my ICS system. Anyone know how to fix this problem? I'm trying to find the "clear app cache" setting for the market but cannot find it.SOLVED: Clearing cache and Dalvik cached worked.

My Google Play apps won't update
Tuesday 23rd of October 2012
About a week ago, my Google Play apps stopped updating. I can still get to Google Play, and it knows which apps it wants to update, and it starts into the downloading dialog, but it never gets anything downloaded. (Looking at the network monitor, it shows that nothing's being downloaded.) Right now, I have about a half dozen apps that want to update, and that process starts every time I turn on the tab, but no joy. I can stop the auto updater, and click on just one of the apps to update, and I get the same (non) thing.Everything else works fine...My Amazon apps update automatically, I can download maps/etc in Google Maps, Gmail works, etc. It's just the Google Play updates that won't work.I'm on ICS, which was updated (automatically) about a month or so ago. No root or anything like that -- strictly "stock". I was, however, in a slow data area (1x on my hotspot) at the time the problem started -- back on 4G now, using a Verizon mifi and/or Samsung S3.Any ideas? Thanx/Jerry
Rebranded Google Play apps starting to push out already
Tuesday 06th of March 2012
The ink is hardly dry on the new Google Play signage, and newly rebranded Google Play apps are already starting to drop into the Android Market Google Play Store Android apps section. (See, isn't that easier to say?)Google's Music, Videos and Books apps will update and rebrand themselves to Play Music, Play Movies and Play Books, if you're running Android 2.2 and above, and if you've already got them in your country of residence. (Paid apps are available in these countries, music in the U.S. only, movies in the U.S., UK, Canada and Japan, and books in the U.S., UK, Canada and Australia.)The Android Market will update itself to the Google Play Store at some point.More: Google Play FAQ
Pay for Google Play apps on ATT S4
Sunday 28th of April 2013
Who knows how you pay for google play apps on the ATT S4. I cant seem to do it because of google wallet being disabled by ATT. I can download the free apps but when I try to pay for an app it gives me an error. I then got an email from gmail asking me to verify my account by sending a picture of my government ID and a recent utility bill. According to google this email is suppose to ask you to login in to your account first and then do it. This email sends you directly to a link to do it. Maybe I should just give them my mothers maiden name and ss number while I'm at it. Needless to say I am not sending them info like that. There has to be another way to pay for google play apps?
