    Very Very new to app building, I was wondering if it is possible to create an app that would allow users to "click" on a picture of an item they want to purchase then email me a purchase order? any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes! I haven't used it yet, but I noticed in the Developer Console there is an "In-App Products" portion that allows for you to attach any products sold within the application to your Google Merchant Account! So I am assuming this allows you to utilize the BILLING portion of the Android SDK, and thus it detects it and bills them. What's even better is Google has an automated "Purchase Order" option that makes it so their orders are automatically confirmed and a Bill of Sale is sent to the user's e-mail! I have only used this for selling my actual app, but I'm sure it works much in the same way.
