The Play Store (formerly known as the Android Market) is the staple that binds developers to their customers. It serves as a proxy for reporting install statistics, error reports, exchange of funds, and the oft dreaded customer reviews.

Consumers can purchase apps, books and music via the Play Store app or website. The service works as you’d expect, at least, most of the time.
