[UPDATED] APK Included – The New Android Market; Additions of Movies, Books and More Stormy Beach 12 July, 2011 39 Comments Life is about to get a whole easier when perusing the never ending Android Market we all love to hate and hate to love. Today VIA Googlemobile.blogspot, it was announced that the new Android Market is being launched over the coming weeks. All devices running Android 2.2 and above should see a new market magically appear when they least expect it. The latest update will finally bring the U.S. patrons the ability to rent and download movies and include a new BOOK section to make reading on the go a breeze. Among other things, the layout has changed dramatically and they have added a more friendly UI. Google has created more space to provide featured applications and editors choice apps. With the incorporation of more top charts and the ability to swipe through the store, going to the market will be easy and fun again. Take a look at the video demonstration they provided via YouTube of the New Market in action. All I can saw is “WOW!” It’s about time we got an overhauled market, even if it does look a little Windowsphone 7ish. I’ll leave the color scheme changes to our remarkable themers. Source: Googlemobile [UPDATE] That sure didn’t take long to get out did it. Thanks to all the guys that already tested it and link it on G+. With out further ado, here is a link to a working version of the new Android Market. No waiting required. Be sure to run a back up first, just in case you have any issues. Install the newest edition and give it a whirl. Current devices that have been stated to be successful are – HTC Desire HD, EVO3D, Thunderbolt and T-Mobile Vibrant. Rooted devices currently DO NOT Support rented movie play back, you will be charged but not able to watch. Let us know what device you installed it on and if it worked. http://www.facebook.com/vesselin.obreshkov Vesselin Obreshkov Looks cool. Some screens reminded me a little of the Amazon App Store. Also like the review mentioned it slightly resembles WP7 but I think that comes also because of the new Google branding which is more clean and clear. Hope it trickles down to my phone soon. http://www.facebook.com/vesselin.obreshkov Vesselin Obreshkov Looks cool. Some screens reminded me a little of the Amazon App Store.
