Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Google Videos app, in case you can´t see it on your market
Google Videos Android application allows users to rent movies with just a few clicks and start watching them almost instantly. It may happen that the app is not appearing in Android market on your phone but thanks to XDA member MaSt3rGrIfF now you can download it without leaving your beloved XDA ;). In order to be able to install it, you must go to settings – Applications – and ticking the “Unknown Sources” check box (select OK on warning). Some members reported this to not be working on rooted devices.
Keep in mind that if the app didn’t show in your market it may be because the service is not available in your region/country yet, and even if you install the app manually it won´t let you use it. However, you will be able to see the most viewed/rated content.

We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
