    We just been tipped by one of our members about the new and improved Market. We think the new Market has win written all over it. From the Android Developers blog:

    To streamline the browse-to-purchase experience, users can now access all the information about an application on a single page without the need to navigate across different tabs. We’re also introducing application content rating to provide users with more information about applications they are interested in. Since most users who request a refund do so within minutes of purchase, we will reduce the refund window on Market to 15 minutes. This change will be largely transparent to buyers, but will help developers manage their businesses more effectively


    To make it easier for developers to distribute and manage their products, we will introduce support for device targeting based on screen sizes and densities, as well as on GL texture compression formats. We are also increasing the maximum size for .apk files on Market to 50MB, to better support richer games.

    With this release, we aimed to deliver features that are most requested by users and developers. However, we’re not done yet. We plan to continue to rapidly enhance Android Market for both users and developers and make it the best content distribution service for the Android ecosystem.

    Please stay tuned as we continue to deliver new capabilities in the coming weeks and months.


    For more pics please visit the Android Developers Blog.

    Has anyone received the update? Let us know.

    Droid-Life has been tweeting that some people have updated to the new one by clearing your market data, but that hasn't worked for me :angry:

    That one is different than this one. All that one does is add a similar tab. You might already know all this but I'm filling in just in case. But, it's pretty useful. Most of the ROMs have it included.

    15 minutes is not enough time to see if the app hurts your phone. Only hurts the devs, I will just be more hesitant to buy apps

    15 minutes? Are they out of their minds? All this is going to do is lead people to use pirated apps way more. I for one will be one of them. If an app is good enough I'll pay for it to support the devs, but I refuse to be held hostage by that stupid decision.

    looks like ill be careful about buying apps over 99cents now. I know the developers want this but what about the customers? If you take away one of the biggest advantages to the android market i think people will buy less apps that are expensive. How can i justify buy a 5 dollar app if i only get fifth teen minutes to try it? The only reason i even bought a bunch of my apps was because i knew that i had a day to try it. I have bought quite a few apps over my year of owning a droid. I guess im done buying apps. I haven't bought an app on my ipod touch in probably over a year simply because i was sick of getting burned by crapware. Looks like my droid shall suffer this same fate.

    How do you go from 24 hours to 15 minutes? That seems crazy... They couldn't even go to like an hour atleast? Dumb decision IMO.

    I want the maps update more. I think I heard during the interview that the maps update would be out in a couple days.

    I don't have it yet. We could back up the app with Titanium backup, then refund it, try it for a couple days and by the app if you are going to keep it.

    very true, good point. Most people won't buy it though once they already have it. Google and the devs are shooting themselves in the foot. People are way more likely to pirate with such a small window
