The newest version of the Android Market which sports a redesign was announced last week and is now rolling out to handsets. We noticed the new market hit our Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 earlier this week, but it had a few bugs with icons part-missing. However, after clearing the cache and downloading a few more apps this morning the latest version seems to have downloaded and is working without a hitch.
The main change is the visual aspect, where the front end has been redesigned to include a carousel for promoted applications. Other changes include new widget/live wallpaper categories and single page app viewing (now including the download link). Another big change is that the app refund window has been reduced to 15 minutes from 24 hours. What is everyone’s verdict on the new Android Market? Seems like a worthwhile update to us.
