    Re: Re: Play Store /= Android

    "...(except maybe the Amazon store)..."

    So you agree with me? Again - Android is a platform. The Play Store (and any other store for that matter) is an app distribution platform. The two are not synonymous.

    The way this article starts out - "...pervasive mentality that the Android app store is a haven for evil, evil piracy..." is only furthering that naive notion.

    Play Store /= Android

    Aside from whatever policies may have been breached, etc, etc, etc...I'm a bit perplexed. Why do people still insist that the Play Store approval process is equal to 'Android'??? ??

    You can install Android without any of Google's branded services (Play Store, Gmail, Maps, etc...). Afterall, there are other app stores available for the platform (as well as sideloading).
