    Did VZW change the entire look of The Market Place on the Droid Charge today?

    I got a completely different look and some trouble opening and closing it. Also, after finally closing it and taking off puzzle lock, it opens firect to the Market on its own.

    Anyone else??

    A marketplace is the space, actual, virtual or metaphorical, in which a market operates. The term is also used in a trademark law context to denote the actual consumer environment in which products and services are provided and consumed.A marketplace is a location where goods and services are exchanged. The traditional market square is a city square where traders set up stalls and buyers browse the merchandise. This kind of market is very old, and countless such markets are still in operation around the whole world.

    Thanks

    Really? It doesn't sort reviews by recent first anymore. I like to read the comments before updating because even though a changelog may just say xyz, I like to see if other people are having issues with the change.

    I agree, this is a very upsetting move on Google's part. I am going to hold out from taking the new market for as long as possible, because of this.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-applications/162803-andoid-market-randomized-reviews.html <-- there is a thread there discussing it. I am a little surprised this hasn't made more people upset. I browse over a lot of different forums, and I have seen very few posts on the subject. This is a pretty big change, and one that really doesn't benefit anyone. I guess very few people look at comments hehe.

    Oh! I'm a comment checker for sure! How are we supposed to know if an app we might be interested in is up to snuff with reviews from last year and 500 updates ago? I did some searching when I initially downloaded the leak. I reverted in hopes that the release that rolled out would be fixed. Not so much!
