Google now manually reviewing apps that are submitted to Google Play Store Google has announced changes to its app review process this week, moves that should 'better protect the community and improve the app catalog.'
According to the search giant, Google Play now has a "team of experts who are responsible for identifying violations of our developer policies earlier in the app lifecycle."

On the other end, if apps are approved they can be brought to the market within hours compared to days previously when it may have sat in a queue.

Additionally, Google adds that "to assist in this effort and provide more transparency to developers, we've also rolled out improvements to the way we handle publishing status. Developers now have more insight into why apps are rejected or suspended, and they can easily fix and resubmit their apps for minor policy violations.

Over the past year, we've paid more than $7 billion to developers and are excited to see the ecosystem grow and innovate. We'll continue to build tools and services that foster this growth and help the developer community build successful businesses."

No praise should be given to Google for doing what SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE years ago.

Android sucks!
