More on Play Store
Android users can enjoy Play store after making an account. The app has over 2.7 million Android app which can be purchased by users from 145 countries. The apps can be distributed by developers in over 150 locations, even if some places do not support merchant registration.
This is important information since all app developers have to pay a 25$ registration fee to create a Google Play Developer Console account. This is a onetime fee and it also allows developers to control in which countries the app is being distributed to and the price depending on the country. Out of the price, developers get 70% and the 30% is divided among distribution partners and operating fees. To test a certain app, developer can select user groups.
