    "goto here, mail this" isn't GPL-compliant

    You are wrong: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html

    I can sell GPL apps if I provide a source code, you can always build it manualy.

     

    And I need money to pay my Google Play account, it's only some kind of "donation".

    Yes they can.
    Quoting the GPLv3 Preamble:

    When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things.


    He does have to:
    1. give the source code to anyone requesting it
    2. give credit where it is due

    And ethically, he should:

    1. Share the profit



    Also, what about the TPT logo? Are there brand guidelines for using it?
