Android Pay comes to Apple Federal Credit Union, C&F Bank, United Bank, and over 30 others

Android Pay is spreading. If you manage your finances with a big bank, chances are you can make payments by tapping your phone against a payment terminal -- yes, even if you use Chase. If you do your banking with a smaller institution, you may have to cross your fingers.

Android Pay v1.5 prepares to show new users where to find NFC on their phones and might be experimenting with the secure element again [APK Teardown]

There are a lot of factors playing into the success and failure of mobile payment systems. Perhaps the most challenging issue for Android Pay to overcome isn't the slow adoption of compatible payment terminals or the general lack of awareness about contactless payments, it's the confusion people experience once they decide to try it.

Android Pay just added 115 new banks (and no, not Capital One)

115 new banks have officially been added to the Android Pay's roster of supported financial institutions. Most of these are regional banks or credit unions, though - I'm not seeing any major national banks on this list (correct me if I missed one, of course). So even if your bank or credit union is a bit obscure, it's quite possible it could appear here - control+F carefully! Without further delay, the list, below.
