Or maybe his bank doesn't want the headache of having to publish its banking app to multiple app stores or guaranteeing the authenticity of it's application on all those stores...I'm sure they have their reasons (valid or not). A lot of other banks don't seem to mind though and they have published on multiple stores (The Amazon App store is a good example) But if you want to believe that Google is blocking them from using other apps stores, then by all means, go ahead...

Are you stating as fact that Google is preventing your bank from publishing their app to the Amazon store (or any other android app stores)? Isn't it more likely the case that your Bank chose to only publish to the Play store?

Are you stating as fact that Microsoft is preventing your OEM from selling a computer with Linux (or any other non-Microsoft operating systems)? Isn't it more likely the case that your OEM chose to only sell and support computers running Microsoft operating systems?

Are you stating as fact that Microsoft/Apple is preventing companies from writing software for Linux (or any other non-Microsoft/Apple operating system)? Isn't it more likely the case that those companies chose to only write software for Windows/OSX? ..your point is?
