Am I the only voice in the wilderness who thinks the requirement of a Google+ account to leave a review for an app is just plain WRONG ?
#evil #google #powerabuse
I would like to leave reviews for some of the Android apps I really appreciate. But leaving reviews on the Google Play Store requires signing up for Google+. Like many others, I refuse to add Google+ (or any social network) to my Google account.
So I thought I would just sign up for another empty Google account, and add Google+ to that. Problem solved. Or so I thought.
If you’ve made a Gmail account, you know the struggle of having to sign up for Google Plus against your will in order to use any of the neat features that come with a Google account. Thankfully,that annoying restriction is on the way out. Now you can create a new Google account in order to further compartmentalize your online presence without making ANOTHER Google Plus account.
One of the great things to come from the world of apps is user reviews. Sure, users have been able to review products forever, but with apps, it has become one of the main methods by which the merits of an app are judged. And now, user reviews on Google Play are getting a little more personal with a new update from Google.
When trying to purchase in-app items, google play selects the wrong google account and do not allow the user to correct it.
I have two google accounts, one private and one business. The private account is the default in google play when buying and installing apps. Though when trying an in-app purchase, the business account is choosen and cannot be changed.
My phone (Samsung s3 mini) isn't accepting any Google account: every time I try to enter anything like Googleplay for example it would ask for the Google account. It sais either EXISTING or NEW, and I've tried both of them – none of them worked.
It then says checking account or something, then...couldn't sign in to account.
So recently I switched from my old Google account to a google apps for Busniess account using my own domain.
After I noticed that my old Google account showed my photo where now I only get teh standard photo avatar on my Moto X....
I'm sure it not the phone just an account setting but I cant seem to figure it out.
I have a photo in my contact and in my Google + yet it still does not show up.
