Re: New to android, quick question about Google wallet!?
That's absolutely not a stupid question, it's smart to be skeptical of things that might have access to your credit card info. Generally, if you are downloading reputable apps, you're going to be fine. It's important to consider things like download count, the developer, review count and ratings and read some of the most recent reviews and if you're unsure about something, find out first. Android does have several layers of protection, but one of the most important ones is when it asks you for app permissions. That being said, several Android Central staff and many members have used that particular app and I've never heard anything weird about it, but you being cautious is not a bad thing at all.
