The idea is great - media and document sharing in real-time, across multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows 8. Want to easily stream a video from your Nexus 4 to your iPad?

Download: Latest Google Play Store 3.10.14

Google is pushing out an update to the Play Store for Android with version 3.10.14.

There are some tweaks to the billing code, but from what I can tell, this is a bug fix release.

If you spot any changes compared to 3.10.10, please drop a note in the comments.

Google has started to push out an update to the Play Store for Android with version 3.10.10.

The page also states that when you place a pre-order, your credit card will not be charged until the book is available.
