In-app purchasing coming to Android next week

A helpful new feature is coming to Android next week. Users will soon be able to use an in-app billing system, meaning they’ll never have to come out of an app to purchase content specific to said app again.

Hardly the death of the iPhone, but it’s a useful tool, especially in the age of DLC that we live in. Android Eco-system representative Eric Chu explains it a little better: “You can now upload your apps to the Developer Console, create a catalog of in-app products, and set prices for them. You can then set up accounts to test in-app purchases. During these test transactions, the In-app Billing service interacts with your app exactly as it will for actual users and live transactions.”

Ultimately, this just means we’re going to lose our money that bit easier.
