Play Store testing card-style search results with screenshot thumbnails

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

The Play Store seems to be testing a new layout for search results. We've received a tip that the normal app list has been replaced by a card-like interface for some, with app listings now including screenshot thumbnails.

Mozilla Stumbler disappears from the Play Store

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Mozilla's open-source app Stumbler was first released on the Google Play Store in November 2014 in the hopes of gathering information about the locations of Wi-Fi networks and cell towers via users' phones.

Users have noticed inactivity for a while, and in the most recent thread in the mozilla.dev.geolocation Google Group, a Mozilla engineer replied to a user inquiring about the status of Stumbler: "The practical reality is - the aggregate data collection by Firefox Android users completely overwhelms the contributions made by the dedicated stumbler app.

[Update: Fix now available] Google Play Store app licensing bug is putting developers in a horrible spot

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Creating (and maintaining) a great app can require a ton of work, so we're happy to compensate developers for all that effort by shelling over a few bucks for their content in the Play Store. But while many app-makers rely on this income stream, a new bug that's popped up in a recent Play Store update threatens to toss a wrench in the works, interfering with how apps can verify paid licenses.
