Google Without giving any detailed information, Madfinger Games announced that because the piracy rates of their game Dead Trigger were so high on Android, they made the game available for free. This sucks balls. I'm interested in more detailed statistics, especially where, exactly, the piracy rate is highest, considering you can only get paid Google Play applications in 31 countries, and then, often only with a credit card (which many people outside of the US don't have and/or use). It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if those piracy rates mostly come from places without paid applications support and/or with lousy payment options. In any case, Google needs to get its act together with the Play Store.

Our banks set a precedence that Debit Card purchases are "final" online. So, if we want any kind of security and "come back" when a purchase goes wrong, we need to use Credit Cards.

I was going to say "that sounds a bit odd" but then I realized who have the most to benefit from credit cards....
