should we start using this in production apps, or better to hold off until out of the developer preview?

I hope they revamp all their libraries and bring in the refund api, so we won't lose money when people refund their IAB

"Returns the most recent purchase made by the user for each SKU, even if that purchase is expired, canceled, or consumed" wonderful 🙂

I'm sorry guys, but implementing this library is a nightmare. I tried for half a day and have given up. It could be the documentation or maybe its me. From what I understand the underlying code is still the iap v3, so then why not use the helper classes that came with it? Those are so much more easier to implement.

I don't get something. This looks very similar to the previous version of the SDK. What's different?
