Google Wallet app gets update includes "core system fixes"

google_wallet_feature

A software update has been issued for the Google Wallet Android application this week and includes “core Wallet system fixes” among the notes.  Unfortunately the reviews for this 1.1-R52v7 release indicate that prepaid card issues are still plaguing the app and users are still unable to add a new card or retrieve data from existing cards.  Let’s hope that this issue is resolved with a quick update to the update.

With Sprint expecting to roll Wallet support out to at least ten more devices this year, Google will want to make sure that everything works well as soon as possible. As many of you know, Google Wallet has seen its share of problems of late and has been found to be susceptible to hacking and workarounds.

What’s in this version:

  1. Ability to handle PO Boxes for Prepaid Card top up
  2. Increased allowable allowable address length for Prepaid Card top up
  3. Fixes to rewards card syncing
  4. Improvements for supporting more handsets
  5. Core Wallet system fixes
