Google Opinion Rewards is now available in India, Singapore, and Turkey

Without a doubt, Google's Opinion Rewards app is how I've bought most of the apps in my library. For the small price of a few surveys, you can usually get some Play credit tacked onto your account.

Android One Is Coming To Turkey, And It's Packing A Pretty Decent Phone

Android One is on its way to Turkey. Today Google announced that it is partnering with General Mobile to bring out a faux-leather phone packed with stock Android and better specs than you would expect from Google's effort to grace the world with decent low-cost devices.

For taking pictures, there's 5MP shooter on the front and a sizable 13MP one on the back. The phone will come with support for LTE.
