Google updates Android Market app store

The internet giant adds to its mobile device play by updating its online application store.

Android

Google has revamped the online version of its applications store Android Market.

The move has been seen by many to encourage the use of tablets based on its Android mobile operating system, as well as making the fiddly process on a smartphone easier to use.

As it is based in a cloud environment, Android users don't have to download any software to their desktops to access the Market as users have to do with iTunes so all purchases can be made in the browser then sent to a handset or tablet.

New search functionalities make it simpler for users to find apps such as top paid for apps, top free apps and featured apps and more information about each app is given to the Googler at first glance such as screen shots and user reviews.

There is even a Twitter button to share favourites with friends as well as in-app billing so customers can upgrade from free trials to full apps or buy the next level on games.

The new version of the site is now live in the UK.
