Google Intros the Android Market Website
Finally, Google has launched what many Android users have been requesting for – the Android Market’s very own website. Yes fellow Android fans, the Android Market is now live and offers a new way of purchasing Android app, managing your accounts, viewing the Android devices you have registered and Android apps you have purchased from the Android Market.
So now, you are no longer limited to accessing the Android Market on your device. You can now check for new Android apps and games as you do your usual web browsing habits. The Android Market Website makes it easier to discoer great new apps with its bigger interface. It also lets you send apps directly to your Android devices via few clicks. And it even has some social sharing features via Twitter and will let you read and post app reviews directly to Android Market from the web or from your Android device.
From the Android Market website, you can also check the apps you’ve already purchase via the “My Market Account” tab. You need to sign in first using the Google account you registered on your device.
Interface-wise, the Android Market website features a clean, simple and straight-forward interface. It has a random slideshow of highlighted Android apps at the top, apps categories on the sidebar, and the featured and free Android apps feature for the main part of the home screen.
Clicking on an app will bring you to its detailed description page where you can check out all the relevant information for that particular app. From there you can also share that app via to your Twitter followers, see posted app reviews, read the app’s brief description, view screenshots and more.
Overall, the Android Market website is a refreshing take on the Android Market. What I really like about it is the fact that it did not completely imitate the device-based Android Market so it gives you an alternative way of checking out the Android Market.
