Actually, I have wondered the same thing about subscriptions. Is a subscription just a consumable managed item, that you then consider consumed at the end of the specified period? Well, not quite, because you don't get recurring billing. And its not something I would do if subscriptions in v3 are somewhere just around the corner.

--Hi all,Reading http://developer.android.com/
google/play/billing/index.html , it seems that they're really pushing for devs to use v3 of the API. At the end, it says you should use v2 if "you want to sell subscriptions in your app." But v3 doesn't handle selling unmanaged items, while v2 does. It seems that you could simulate selling unmanaged items in v3 by actually selling managed, consumable items that the client immediately consumes. Is this encouraged? Is there a better way to sell unmanaged items in the v3 API?Thanks,Mike
