Re: Google Wallet vs. ISIS What gives?

I am in complete agreement.  If Verizon really wants Isis to take off, they are going to need to allow fair competition.  Many of the one star reviews on the Play Store have nothing to do with Isis, and everything to do with not allowing Google Wallet. 

Verizon:  allow Google Wallet IFC payments and let the best app win.  You will find that most people would use both and elevate the entire market.

Which is why those reviews should be ignored. It is not a review of the app if it has nothing to do with the app.Smiley Happy

For what it is worth, it appears Google Wallet is fully functional in Android 4.4. Unfortunately, I believe the Moto X is currently the only device on Verizon with that version of Android. I have considered purchasing this device solely for that reason. If it was available in stores and not on a per-order basis thru Motorola, I most likely WOULD purchase the device!

This has been explained before. This is why the FTC and Google do nothing.

The secure element you must be white listed by Google. That means you have to pay up to allow it. If that wasn't the case than ANY unlocked, and unbranded device with a secure element would work with Wallet. They don't. If Google was being indifferent and actually competing they wouldn't lock out the secure element(one reason why Isis has it in the Sim card), and all devices with NFC/secure element would work with Wallet.

I have multiple devices that are unlocked and unbranded and I can't use Wallet.

So you think it's good competition to pay someone you ate competing against?
