Google just released the third version of in-app billing for the developers. These changes might not be noticed by use normal consumers but there are a few big changes for developers to use. The new model can be deployed on Android 2.2 and above devices. Here’s a look at what’s new:
- An improved design that makes applications simpler to write, debug and maintain. Integrations that previously required several hundred lines of code can now be implemented in as few as 50.
- More robust architecture resulting in fewer lost transactions.
- Local caching for faster API calls.
- Long-anticipated functionality such as the ability to consume managed purchases and query for product information.
