Google has launched a new version of Android Market, the digital store that provides the Android phone users more than 100,000 applications and games.
“You would be pleased to discover that we have revised Android Market, in order to make it faster, easier and more enjoyable for you to discover applications, movies and books. We have created a larger space for posting the most interesting content of the week in the home page. Several top-charts have been added, with newer and more relevant items and now it is easier to go through the charts while navigating the stores”, explained Google in an official blog post.
The improvement of the Android application store is due to some complains the users have made towards the previous versions. Despite being the leader in the online search segment, Google has initially created a heavyish interface for the application store.
In addition, Android Market has a worthy opponent in the Amazon application store dedicated to the Android platform, which has succeeded in convincing several publishers to launch applications exclusively for the Amazon portfolio.
Therefore, Google has some catch up to do in order to remain relevant on his own mobile platform. We shall see if the redesign of the store will succeed in attracting the users.
