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.

I have always considered a CC the currency of the 21st century...

Calling credit cards specifically "the currency of the 21st century" almost couldn't be further from the truth... they are sort of obsolete, mostly just about the number, at their core virtually lacking modern security concepts - being from the times of blissful innocence.

Debit cards OTOH... (typically "online" in the sense that they require connection and authorisation for operations; but, historically, that complicated "online" - in the web sense - transactions)
