This'll be something the other Eco system over lords will not steal/copy ever.

Google Play Store, the single biggest improvement to Android. I remember the early days when you could literally view every new app daily because the market was so small. Things like this are needed now, good move on Google to keep things tidy, now get this implemented please.

Now it's really hard to find anything in the play store unless you know the name already google should really work on the categories and the way they are sorted.

Tech sites have helped too, with app reviews. Android Police has a large weekly review of new apps that covers all the categories well.
Still though, Google is continually working on making it better. In comparison to the store that Cupcake had, it's come a very long way. What I'd like to see is a way to clean up incorrect category placement of apps. I'm sure there are some developers who deliberately use key words to get their apps placed in more categories, this needs to stop. When I'm looking for a notepad app, I don't need wallpaper or flashlight apps in the search list, as an example.

Thus would mean that the total app count would be less than 700,000!! As half of the apps are fake..... this would also mean that app gap between windows and others would reduce significantly

It's time they have really good quality apps than Apple.
Cheap apps should be thrown out.

Yeah, Google needs to clear out the thousands of flashlight apps, for example.

But will they keep good clones and throw out crappy originals? I mean, Flexo was a pretty nice guy...
