Google hosted a Honeycomb event today. One thing that they introduced during this event was the web version of the Android Market. You can now browse for apps, pay for them and install all from your laptop!
Honestly, I wasn’t too excited about this when I was watching the event until I tried it! Just go to market.android.com sign in and download to your hearts content! It’s pretty cool, AppleGirl jealous?
Check out the details below.
Hit install on the app, and you’ll be prompted that the app will download shortly on your phone.
In my case, almost instantly. I wasn’t fast enough to get a shot of the app downloading 😉 (can’t complain about it being fast right?)
After the app is installed, it’ll show as INSTALLED on the web Android Market.

Finally Google got around to copying Apple. Yes, GoogleChic, we already had access to our iApps on our computers (On iTunes, we can surf the App Store, although we cannot select and download an App to the iPhone)
Google harnessing its cloud power is definitely not a game changer. Let’s hope this helps Android cover the gap (350K – 150K Apps) to beat Apple in the App business. More importantly, with the extended exposure, Android web store should be an added incentive for developers to create Apps for Android (vs. creating an App for Apple).
