    Android developers are being notified that they need to declare by Jan. 11, 2016, whether their applications have ads in them or not. This currently is a requirement only for apps that want to be included in Google's "Designed for Families" category in GOOGLE PLAY. But starting early next year all applications will have to declare whether they include advertising

    Google will be doing some checking on this. If you attempt to say that your app doesn't contain ads, Google runs a quick check of SDKs included in your app and will nudge you appropriately.

    as an app developer it's not the greatest news, but as a user, it's good news and right fuckin time :)

    they also lowered the minimum purchase price of an app and in-app purchases in several countries (to $0.45 where i live, in Russia it went below $0.25), which is good news i guess, so maybe you need to switch from free apps stuffed with ads to paid apps, although in the US the minimal price stayed at $1
