So a while back we had shown you the new Android Market. There were a few problems associated with it, but it started to stabilize.
Personally I had shied away from it. I tried it, but then a couple of force closes and I reverted to the ‘stock’ version.
Well last night I went to check for app updates and noticed it had updated itself. So no more needing to sideload the update if you wanted it. Now it’s not an option. I went to check on my wife’s phone and it automatically did the same thing.
So, I won’t review it, as most of you have previously seen it already – but it’s neat. Very Metro UI. Swipe left and right to view the categories. Staff picks is novel. What I don’t like is that it doesn’t have a button for “MY APPS”. I know it should automatically tell me which updates are there, but it’s not always so on the ball for that [same with the G+ notifications eh Tom?]. And I know if I hit ‘menu’ there’s an option for it… but I don’t want to have to hit the soft buttons (funny, I cursed when they removed the hard buttons, now I barely even want to use them).
