    Google Play, Yea or Nay?

    So, with the announcement and transition to Google Play from the Android Market, how do you feel about the change? Thoughts, concerns, questions, comments are welcomed.

    I like it. I look forward to seeing what Google has in store for it other than just a name change.

    The name is awful! Seriously, Play? Great if all they have are games and music. Market was a good name. If they wanted to have their app store be more inclusive if their other services why didn't they just change the name to Google Market, instead of Android Market?

    Hmm... been to busy lately to be tracking too much Android news... I must say I was very shocked when I opened the market and it said Play and I had a random Play icon in my app drawer... I do think they could have picked a better name though. I just don't see people saying "Its will be available in Play." Not like Appstore or Market.

    I don't like play, im not against a name change, but Google could have come up with something better. If all you do with your smartphone is text, call, and play angrybirds, play fits just fine. I got a smartphone for my business, if I download an app from the market, oops, if I download an app from the Play, it usually has nothing to do with playing, but I'm beginning to believe that I'm in the minority.

    I don't have a problem with Google Play. But I do hate Google Play Store...it makes it sound very childish.

    I think the name isn't as obvious to noobs. Like if I'm trying to tell my mom how to get an app I'll be like "you have to go to play...
    er, Google play...
    er, it's called the play store...
    its where you get play music and play videos... no you don't play them from Google play store you play them from Google play music and play videos"

    I think the main problem is that they're using a verb as a proper noun.
