    Google Wallet was updated today to allow any kind of card, not just Mastercard any longer. This app is finally useful.

    Go get it: Wallet.

    I was able to install this from my desktop.

    That's funny....I had GW installed (I thought doing the work-around to get it from the Play Store). It worked fine, but when I saw this, it wasn't in the list of My Apps on my phone, so I couldn't update it. Couldn't even see it when I searched the Play Store. When I used your link though, it came up (of course), saying it was installed on my Nexus. So I clicked install, selected my Nexus as the device (even though it said it was already installed), and it downloaded to my phone and installed. Don't know why I couldn't see it in my list of apps though. Oh well, all is good now!

    Now if there were only more retailers that accepted it. Like maybe EVERY gas station.

    I wonder since now all card info is stored on a secure online server instead of the secure element on the phone, if this will eliminate the threat of the secure element error that has notoriously borked Wallet in the past for so many people?

    Also, I wonder if people who got this error, will their Wallet app now work as well since the secure element is out of the picture?

    Well it can only be so secure, which is why I got a specific card for online use only and which is why I encourage others to do the same. Had my info compromised twice before I did this and ever since I started the "online only" haven't had a problem since.

    I'm just trying to decide what I would need Google Wallet for lol...

    I was referring to the error that was breaking the nfc functionality of the google wallet app itself, not the security of the app.

    Btw. Verizon got slapped with a $1.25 million fine from the FCC for telling the Google App store to not allow Verizon users to download and install tethering apps. I wonder if that applies to other apps as well...
