Is Google about to remove a large number of apps from the Play Store?
Android app developers not following Google's directions could find their apps removed from the Play Store
Some Android developers welcomed the move, saying that will help Google remove junk apps from the Play Store. Assuming that a large number of developers simply allow Google to remove their apps, it will help Android users wade through the smaller number of apps available to find exactly what they are looking for.
As of the end of last year, there were believed to be 2.6 million apps in the Google Play Store. It should be interesting to see what that figure is culled down to once this purge is completed.
