Google has updated its Android Marketplace, which has recently crossed the two lakh apps mark, to make the best and popular applications visible at the top so the users do not face difficulty in locating the apps they are looking for.
The changes made by Google are simple and intuitive, which mostly use the search capabilities of the company to find out which application is doing well among the users. The editorial category is the only one where human discretion will prevail. The only problem with this is that while popular apps become more visible, users may not even see lesser known applications.
The web interface of the Android Market has undergone a major overhaul and has included five more categories: Top Developers, Editor’s Choice, Related Apps, Top Apps, and Trending Apps. In every category, the apps are presented in a different manner to make the entire process more convenient.
The developers can upload bigger files, hence users can expect heavier apps for their Android devices as well. This news will gladden the hearts of hard core gamers who were not able to get some games due to the file size restrictions.
The update will be sent to the Android smartphones and tablets.
