Android Market Woes

It hasn’t been a good week for the Android Market, at least not from a developer’s point of view.  The problem of download statistics not updating has recurred and many developers, including myself, have not seen updates for the best part of a week.

In addition to this there there is also an ongoing problem with the authorisation and charging of paid apps.  This appears to be getting a bit better today but I am still left with many app purchases in an indeterminate state.  I simply have no idea if the users have been charged or have been able to download the app.

What prompted me to write this was the announcement on the official Android blog about a new feature to the developer console.  I wish Google would fix the basic issues like counting and charging before heading off and implementing new features.
