Android Market Update

Yesterday night, Motorola XoomWiFi owners were treated to an over the air update. Once the device was done updating and completely scoured for new updates, most users might have been a little puzzled. It wasn’t until they opened the market that the update became prevalent and exciting. Absolutely packed with new features, user-interface, and more, the market is surely a step-up from the older market. Although some phones may have gotten this update a while back, the cool guys over at Droiddog put together a nice little video detailing what new market looks like on the Motorola Xoom WiFi.


Ice Cream Sandwich has also been boasting a new little implementation of “fragments”. As you can see in the picture above, this new feature allows the tablet and phone markets to be similar through a simple swiping motion. If you swipe one screen to the left on the phone, you will see the categories page. If you swipe one page to the left on a tablet, it will use half the page to display the categories.

As you can see, the new market is incredibly beautiful and the new user interface is impecable. Could this be a message from Google? Did Android’s market just become larger than the App store?
