New Android Market Update Unofficially Available for Download

37

We just gave you a heads up on the new Android market and now it looks like the app has already been ripped. It’s the real deal and it works! It features all the UI changes and issues discussed earlier.

According to Android Police, the APK is known to work only on stock Android 2.2 devices. It has been successfully tested on both the Google Nexus One and T-Mobile G2 running stock versions of Android 2.2 (Froyo).

Overall, the update looks good but it might take me sometime to get use to it. I was able to easily install it on a T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant running Obsidian v4.2. The update might come as a disappointment to Fast Web Installer fans. Though I was able to successfully install the AppBrain Fast Web Installer, true to the story, Google has disabled this functionality. This is the message you will get after I when you try to run the Fast Web Installer app:

Some reports have also been made about problems with it running on CyanogenMod 6.1. I have not had any issues running it on the Samsung Vibrant except for one ‘force close'; it have been smooth since then. If you are still itching to get your hands on the new Market app then you can find it via the QR code below. The good thing is that it can be uninstalled easily from the application manager.

So what are you waiting for? Download the new Android Market and tell us what you think about it. Have fun!

    why are android users so childish?? the update will be released in just a few days, why risk doing harm to your phone? a new app installer isn’t going to change anything!!! i’ve never seen such elementary behavior from other platform users

    • Doc

      I can wait but why does what other people do to THEIR phones bother you so much. To me that’s childish. If someone wants to try the newest stuff before the masses, what business is it of yours?

      WOW! Get a life already.

    several FCs on a Vibrant with JK6, but overall ok.

    The new 15 minutes cooling off period is a joke, if you want to compare several applications before making a buying decision.

    It will just push more people to pirate.
