New Android Market – Hit or Miss?


Google is soon going to release a new version of the Market for phones running Android 2.2 and above. I have to say that I’m rather shocked that it has the tile look and feel, similar to the Windows 7 phone. I’m sure AppleGirl is having a good laugh at my expense right now since she knows how much I HATE the Windows look and feel. 

The new Market will allow for users to rent movies and download them to view later if a data connection is not available. In addition, you can buy books directly from the Market instead of using a separate app for that. Overall, there are some good new features, but I just don’t like the tile look! Who knows, maybe I’ll get used to i?

Check it out for yourselves.



If you have ever seen the Android Market interface, you know the convoluted look and feel of Android. So Google decides to revamp it. And what do they make it look like? Windows Phone 7. ROFL.  GoogleChic, you were right about me having a good laugh 🙂

Market comes with a lot of top Apps – Top free, Top paid, Trending, Staff picks, Top grossing, Top new paid, Top new free, Editor’s choice – now we know what convoluted means.

GoogleChic can’t you customize Market like everything else on Android? Such a bummer 😛
