Google has launched Google Play, a rebranded version of the Android Market to reflect the company's multimedia offerings.
A group of Android app developers are saying that Google is stiffing them and they want their money.
The European coders have inundated Google's forums saying their February fees (70 percent of sales) weren't received on March 7, as typically scheduled. Google seemed aware of the problem, placing a short message in red on the developer's console that some European developers hadn't been paid but its "Learn More" link didn't work, according to BBC News.
Google acknowledged that it was working on the complaints, but left no word on why it happened or the problem originated with Google or its partners. But most of the European developers were upset at the lack of direct contact -- and apparently having no one to yell at.
"They seem to think no direct contact is a good thing??? Crazy situation but that's how these big corps work and until it hurts their bottom line nothing will change," one developer named UKAPPS wrote on the Checkout Merchant forum.
