    Yes, I use Google Play regularly. I have been browsing Google Play hoping to find the best apps. App ratings and comments from users were guiding me to decide which app was the best, only to find out later that it wasn't the best. This information will help me save data I've been wasting in downloading apps I would delit the next minute. Thank you Google.
