Hello, Google Play: Google launches sweeping revamp of app, book, music, and video stores
Smart move by Google, I think, to rebrand its content store. It doesn’t make sense to call it the Android Store when it includes all markets, including Chrome books, Android and Google TV. I assume the content can be run on Mac and Windows, too, or at least books, music and videos can.
But “Play”? For music and videos it makes sense to me. But for apps and books? Play implies that only games and entertainment apps are important. Does Google Play sell books for learning? How about productivity apps? Can I find work-related stuff in Google Play? And is that the logical place to look for these things?
