<li>Android&trade; should have a trademark symbol the first time it appears in a creative.</li>
<li>Android should always be capitalized and is never plural or possessive.</li>
<li>"Android" cannot be used in names of applications or accessory products,
including phones, tablets, TVs, speakers, headphones, watches, and other devices. Instead use "for Android".
<li><span style="color:red">Incorrect</span>: "Android MediaPlayer"</li>
<li><span style="color:green">Correct</span>: "MediaPlayer for Android"</li>
<p>If used with your logo, "for Android" should be no larger than 90% of your logo’s size.
First instance of this use should be followed by a TM symbol, "for Android&trade;".</p>
<li>Android may be used as a descriptor, as long as it is followed by a
proper generic term. (Think of "Android" as a term used in place of
"the Android platform.")
<li><span style="color:red">Incorrect</span>: "Android MediaPlayer" or "Android XYZ app"</li>
<li><span style="color:green">Correct</span>: "Android features" or "Android applications"</li>

<li>If you make any mention of Google Play or Android outside of the badge a legal attribution
must be included. </li>
<li>If you are including another app store’s legal attribution then include this legal
