Google Is Pushing Out Redesigned Android Market

Posted by at 12:03 am on July 13, 2011

Google as promised has begun pushing out its redesigned Android Market layout in a bid to improve Android’s traditional problem with showcasing apps. The new portal focuses on a promo page to highlight content rather than just top sellers. It’s now has a more colorful look with visual promos and a top banner. The core of the apps and game-specific sections also have categories accessible through swiping that also reflect an Apple like division, including top paid and free titles as well as top grossing apps to catch high-end titles.

Individual apps get more elaborate previews that include easy to access multi-shot galleries as well as videos. Buying an app should now take as little as two presses and shows apps from the same developer. Books and movies are also now more integrated instead of needing a separate portal.

The new Market needs at least Android 2.2 to see and is being pushed out in phases. Everyone should have it within the “coming weeks,” Google said.

Android has been rapidly building up an app library and now has over 200,000 apps.
