PayPal just launched its Mobile Payments Library for the Android OS, allowing developers to include in-app payments into their software without having to worry about keeping customers’ personal financial information secure. This means that soon you’ll be able to make PayPal transactions on your Android device without having to leave the application that you’re using.
This is pretty convenient for Android users. You can even purchase a pizza using PayPal as illustrated in the image above. But does this in-app PayPal payment method violate the Android Market Content Policy for Developers? It states that “developers should only charge for applications and downloads from Android Market through the Market’s Payment Processor”.
