    Talking New Android Market Is Coming To Phones, Brings Books And Movies Along With It

    New Android Market Is Coming To Phones, Brings Books And Movies Along With It

    Posted by Cameron Summerson in Android OS, News

    Today Google announced a new version of the Android Market via its Android Developers Blog, and it aims to ease the pain of navigating the current market. The layout is entirely different, as it's designed to highlight top apps and games and improve the user experience. The update will also bring the addition of Books and Movies to US handsets, and other "select countries" soon after.

















    The entire experience looks to be streamlined, with a much more intuitive layout and quicker access to to what you're looking for. The new Market also incorporates swiping through pages of Top Free, Top Paid, Top Grossing, Top New Paid, Top New Free, and Trending Lists, as opposed to the tabs that we've become accustomed to seeing in past markets.
    The app details page has also taken on an overhaul, with a static bar along the top that includes the app name and quick access to download/buy. Just below that is a scrollable list of screenshots, as well as description, changelog, and reviews.
    A phased rollout is already underway to phones running Froyo or higher, and is expected to hit all phones worldwide in the coming weeks.

    Do we know of a work around for us rooted users to get this new market? I remember Google saying rooted users won't have access to the movies or books (effing lame).

    This is the rooted version? Or just a different link to the same apk?

    It has been confirmed depending on what rom you are running you may be able to use either the book feature & the movie feature or just the book feature ...it all depends on the ro m if the rom has very little edits & mods the movie & book feature works this has been confirmed for rooted t-bolts,D2s,& Dx2s
