Returns and refunds on Google Play

Refunds may be available for purchases on Google Play:
If something was bought on your account or with your payment method that you didn’t permit, we can usually help.
If the purchase you made wasn’t delivered, doesn’t work, or isn’t what you expected, we can usually help.
If you bought something by accident, or bought something then changed your mind, we may be able to help depending on the specific situation.
If you give your account or payment details to someone else, appear to be abusing our policies, or don’t protect your account with authentication, we usually can’t issue a refund.
It’s important that you make a refund request as soon as possible after you find an issue. Select a link below for more information and to find out how to make a request.

Refund times:

Pattern: Riblets vs. VIPER

Engineering the architecture behind Uber's new rider app

Not being held back by our extensive codebase and previous design choices gave us the freedom where we otherwise would have made compromises. The outcome is the sleek new app you see today, which implements a new mobile architecture across both iOS and Android. Read on to learn why we felt the need to create this new architecture pattern, called Riblets, and how it helps us reach our goals.

The platforms share:

Core architectureClass namesInheritance relationships between business logic unitsHow business logic is dividedPlugin points (names, existence, structure, etc.)Reactive programming chainsUnified platform components
Each Riblet is made up of one Router, Interactor, and Builder with its Component (hence the name), and optional Presenters and Views. The Router and Interactor handle the business logic, while the Presenter and View handle the view logic.

WireMock

WireMock is a flexible library for stubbing and mocking web services. Unlike general purpose mocking tools it works by creating an actual HTTP server that your code under test can connect to as it would a real web service.

It supports HTTP response stubbing, request verification, proxy/intercept, record/playback of stubs and fault injection, and can be used from within a unit test or deployed into a test environment.

Although it’s written in Java, there’s also a JSON API so you can use it with pretty much any language out there.
