Google Android is slowly catching Apple when it comes to apps, as there are now 100,000 apps available on Google’s Android Market, which we discussed in a recent post. However, that number could soon increase if a rumor of a new PayPal payment option happens.
According to WirelessGround Blog writer Mont Cessna, the information had been leaked onto PayPal’s blog, but has since been deleted. Google has not made an official statement, but you can be sure that one will come soon — we just don’t know when.
Apple is king when it comes to apps, but they also offer PayPal as a payment option, which some believe has helped them. There are those who do not want to keep handing out their credit/debit card details to more services — such as Android Market — so using their current PayPal account could be the perfect option.
Google’s Android Market has come a long way in a short amount of time, and with the range of handsets on the market now, it is only a matter of time before the Apple will feel them breathing down the back of their neck.
Would you use PayPal to pay for your Android apps?
