According to the Wall Street Journal, Google will be launching its very own App Store in the coming months.
The store will be focused on allowing third party developers to create tools and enhancements for Google’s lineup of apps (Gmail, Google Docs, Calendar, Sites, etc.). As with the stores on the iPhone of Android mobile devices, both the app’s creator and Google would share in the profits from the sale of each tool.
The possibilities for the functions of these potential tools look relatively limitless, as they could be created for anything from additional security, porting information from other sources into Google apps, and so on.
As Google itself has already released a series of optional (and free) enhancements for their Gmail client and for the Chrome browser, among others, these upgrades will need to offer quite a bit if they wish to sway a very frugal public into paying for them.
What do you guys think? Would you be willing to pay for improvements to your Google-related experiences?
