I was browsing the Android market today when I noticed something a little strange. All the prices of paid market apps were in pounds sterling with a little ‘~’ symbol before them. It seems that whichever country the buyer is from, the market now gives you the approximate price of apps in that currency. Kind of handy for me, as now American apps seem a bit cheaper with a dollar being worth more than a pound. Here’s a link to the Tweet by @AndroidDev confirming this. Don’t forget to tell us what you think. I think this is a great idea!
Google is bringing back its Android Dev summit this November. The last one was in 2015, and it was also hosted by the Computer History Museum.
