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.

We use debit cards for everything.

Yes here too. Except, in the UK our Debit Cards have a provider linked to them. They still act *just like* a Debit Card (money comes from personal bank account, lack of funds will prevent use etc), but because they are Visa/MasterCard (majority, some used to be Solo), they will also work anywhere a "credit card" is required. Personally, my Debit Card is with Barclays and is a Visa Debit. It works everywhere, world wide, where Visa is accepted. If your cards don't work like that, well, they should.
