    It is forbidden to have in the app link RATE APP or I misunderstood?

    "incentives" should not be given to rate the app - this was I think old policy also - you can ask user to rate but cannot promise something in return for it. And probably also not ask user to rate high (though that is not explicitly said in Google language).

    Regarding artificially inflating app's install count - I hope this does not affect Tapjoy/GetJar/Sponsorpay model (i.e. incentivized app installs). Though it could be argued that if user is picking off an app wall (even if it is incentivized i.e. user gets virtual currency in return) that there is an element of choice (?)

    Virtual goods and currency subject to payment processor policy - what this means - that you cannot offer virtual currency to your users ? For example by Daily Rewards - which could be used to unlock content - and possibly to use incentivized app installs (GetJar/Tapjoy/Sponsorpay) to also earn some of that currency ? What is Google's payment processor policy ?

    or will the ad networks kill the ad types altogether, or swap with other ads, in order to.. survive?
    No need to make any changes right away, you have 30 days. The policy requires that the ads wont be activated, nothing mentioning that the SDK should be removed.

    From my experience, nothing is really taking into effect that quick when it comes to ad policies. It will probably take even more than 30 days for GG to disapprove the apps but you have to think long term..

    Startapp, airpush etc will still be around because they both have out of app sdks, just not in as big way as they were right now.

    Many locations STILL cannot charge for apps (my situation also) - so Google better start creating other ways to earn off the apps.

    Check out this thread - which covers the issues we were having with getting Airpush supposed "in-app SDK" (i.e. no push ads etc.) getting flagged by AVG Antivirus.

    http://forums.makingmoneywithandroid...html#post16727


    With this Google move, it now leaves Airpush no other business than to support their (thus far ignored) "in-app SDK".

    Also I would suggest they drop the whole com.XXXXX.YYYYY SDK naming scheme - whose original purpose was to hide their SDK from antivirus apps etc. - as the SDK would look like a developer-created library (I am assuming).

    Having a known name and attribution may also help them avoid the issues they now seem to be having with AVG Antivirus.

    Graphic means clearly visible in this context. So sexy poses are allowed. Not sure about sex pose - probably too because "graphic" has quite a strong meaning. I'm not native too, though, so don't take my words for granted.

    30 days or it will get removed if reported.

    Side notes:
    They will have a chunk less free apps from me. My apps that don't have a normal monetization system for ads will be moved to paid apps.

    Anyone making quality wallpaper, theme, utility and background apps will not be putting them out for free unless they are completely retarded.

    Users will cry about this so much. But they need to realize there are consequences. That is a smaller and smaller free app market.

    The big developers that gave in app bonuses for rating 5's are going to have to rip it out or get taken down.

    Apps that give in-game points for downloading other apps will be removed as well. Bye bye Mob wars and all that other crap.


    Last thought:

    How many apps that give notifications (for example "sports scores") will be reported and get suspended due to users who don't get it that the app was designed specifically to do that and there is a setting to turn it off. Will be some pretty terrible stories soon to come.
