Google scraps 24 hour Android app refund
Google has scrapped its 24 hour refund policy on Android apps, replacing it with a 15 minute window.
As part of an update for the Android Market, Google is now only allowing customers to apply for a refund in the first 15 minutes after purchasing the app, saying it will help developers manage their businesses.
The policy update comes amid a redesign of the Android Market, which includes a related content option and allows users to view all the information about an app on a single page without tabs.
We understand that Android developers have been having a tough time making money from their apps, but given the jiggery pokery surrounding hidden Android Market charges, reducing the refund period from 24 hours to 15 minutes won’t give users much time to check their bill to see what they’ve really paid. Bad Google.
The update will be distributed to all devices running 1.6 or higher over the next two weeks.
