I'm searching for an android app for Bitcoin (a bitcoin wallet?) with the ability to buy Bitcoin as in-app purchase using the Google Play credit.

This forum is full of genial programmers thus if a similar app don't exist I'm sure there is a reason.

Do you know something about this?

Thank you

Couple of problems:

1) 30% overhead!

2) The transactions are often backed by credit cards, so there is a long list of things that aren't allowed. See the last one:

https://support.google.com/payments/answer/75724

It may be that you could do it for a while, but it's unclear that it'd be sustainable.

Agreed. 30% + Exchange Fees + Your Profit = 35%-40% above exchange rates. Even if it got accepted into the store your app would get shut down quickly.

As said before, the %30 overhead and the rules concerning currency exchange kill this idea.
