    1. The title is slightly missleading because this is about a Paypal Application for Android and not about Paypal itself.

    2. Unfortunately, for some places on this planet, there are no alternatives to Paypal.

    That's why I put it in my quote, but now it is in the title as well :)
    Yes, a pity indeed. In my country we have a lot more payment methods than Credit Card, so they are not very common here, and I don't want to get one and pay for it just for a handful of things I can only buy with PayPal or CC.

    Relatively safe yes. Anyone who can see your network data can abuse this. You can protect from a lot of attackers by not using public WiFi, but you're not safe from your provider, governments etc.
