Many Android users in Brazil have surely, at some point in time, wished they could give a friend the gift of Google Play. Others have probably longed for the ability to translate cold, hard cash into apps and other digital content. Well Google is ready to satiate their desires. Play Store gift cards have started rolling out to various retailers across Brazil.

These plastic representations of money come in increments of R$30, R$50, and R$100.

Have you felt the draw to get into app development, but didn't really know how to get started? Google wants to make things a little easier with a brand new guidebook that's meant to get developers on the right path. The Secrets to App Success on Google Play is an 81-page eBook that outlines the process and best practices for developing and submitting your software to the Play Store, and hopefully make some money on it.

The American Red Cross has produced no shortage of high-quality Android apps. When we see the organization's name pop up in the Play Store, we generally know that we're in for something good, possibly even life-saving.

Well, things are a little different this time. You see, the Red Cross's latest app is actually a game for kids. It goes by the name of Monster Guard: Prepare for Emergencies.

Nexus 6 pre-orders have been a bit of a mess here in the U.S., with the majority of users still not able to throw their money at Google in exchange for this massive and elusive device. With everything running so, uh, smoothly (?), it's only logical that Google releases it to a dozen or so other Play Stores, right? Right.

OK, maybe I'm being a little overly-cynical here. It's not actually available anywhere else yet.

It's common for Google to drop a few accessories in the Play Store each time a new Nexus comes out, but they often don't ship until at least a few weeks after the device itself. Maybe by the time you get your hands on a Nexus 6 the newly listed cases (by Case Mate) will be shipping. The folio and clear case for Motorola's first Nexus are in the Play Store, but you can't order yet.

Android Wear still has some growing to do, but the G Watch R might be the watch to get while that happens. It has a round OLED display, good construction, and great battery life. It is also not completely unattractive, and now it can be yours. Google is selling the G Watch R for $299.99.

HTC has dropped its Weather app into the Play Store. Forecasts suggest that it will only impact people who own one of the manufacturer's more recent phones running Android 4.4 or higher. Even then, there's a slight chance that it won't work on certain seemingly eligible devices just yet. With any luck, this problem will dissipate over the coming days.

HTC Weather can take the place of your local weather forecaster.

There are a ton of apps available in the Play Store, and while a large number of them are free, some require forking over some cash. This generally means each user has to decide for themselves whether or not a piece of software is worth the money. But for people in Serbia, there's been no such option. At least, until now.

For years, potential shoppers have waited for Google to bring the option to pay for apps to Serbia.

The wounds are still fresh from Google's somewhat disastrous Nexus 6 launch last week, but the company is trying to get things back on track. The Nexus 6 page on the Play Store has been updated with a promise that Google is working to get more stock, and it's aiming to have some phones ready to go each Wednesday.

The HTC RE is the kind of camera that doesn't come with a viewfinder. Similar to GoPro's action-oriented video recorders, the RE is something that you wear while doing something active or hold pointed vaguely towards something of interest.

The RE doesn't require a paired device to work, but if you really need to see what the device is picking up, you can turn to the companion app. HTC has dropped it into the Play Store for users to install on their smartphones regardless of make or model.
