Google still can’t regulate app submissions on the Play Store

Google still can’t regulate app submissions on the Play Store

You'll be able to look at maps of the city and find locations of places you're staying as well as where that place is in relation to where you may be sight-seeing.

Rather than immediately bombarding users upon installing the infected apps, ads only become visible at least 24 hours after the apps are launched.

And what do you need to do in order to access all that? You can track flights if you haven't booked one yet and later on, you can manually add reservations that may not be in your email.

Researchers from mobile security firm Lookout have announced that 238 apps on Google Play with an aggregate of over 440 million downloads have been found to contain the BeiTaAd plugin. That said, Google is no stranger to scrapping projects or changing things around as it often does this with other services. CooTek is popular for its keyboard app, TouchPal.




Fear not as Trips on web has gotten more robust of course. And if you didn't have an itinerary in mind, the app could generate one for you. The decision isn't surprising at all since Google has recently redesigned the Trips app on the web that's meant to replace the Android app.

According to a Google support page, the company only plans to support the app for two more months, so Google Trips will close on August 5.

The app itself features a customisable map helps the user plan exactly what they were going to do while they were in a country, and for numerous top cities around the world, users received curated suggestions (i.e. a city guide) as well - which was ideal for people looking for a place to eat or have a glass of the local tipple.

Google Travel brings together Trips, Google Hotels and Google Flights. With apps totaling over half a billion downloads, DO Global's ban, for a number of reasons including sharing user data with the Chinese government, sent shockwaves through the app world.
