Finding apps on Android market has been the problem that users and developers have been complaining when it comes to Android. Google has recognized that making the app portfolio for Android stronger is going to be the key. To make apps more visible to users, Google earlier had made some changes to the online Android Market and now its the phones that will be getting the update soon. The new Android Market features a whole new design to help users find apps easily, plus users in the U.S will be able to rent movies and purchase books. Google plans to bring this additional functionality to other countries but I don’t think this feature will be available in India any time soon. Here are some changes you will be able to see on your Android phones soon. We have managed to get the new market from xda developers forum working on our rooted phone.
The new look is interesting and brings the changes from the online market to Android phones now. The first page looks strikingly similar to windows phone 7 interface but that may only be an attempt to make the new market look cleaner and better. Other than that you will notice some good changes like the lists that the online market has. Some well though out changes are the inclusion of more from developer list when you click on an app. Overall in our judgement the app is a much needed refreshing change to the older Android Market on phones, it even looked primitive. The snazzy new UI feel and vast visibility improvements will definitely make installing apps easier and more fun for users. Developers will be encouraged by the inclusion of new lists in the phone app. Here are some screenshots we took on our phone.
