There is a new version of the Android Market app available for download now. It's a challenge to see how it is different, because it looks identical, but from the reports we have been hearing, it is faster. This leads us to believe that the primary changes they made were simply optimizations and improvements for performance. If you notice anything else that seems different sound off in the forums. Here's a download link below, and a source link to XDA for originally finding the story.

I would definitely accept bug fixes and performance upgrades as being more ten enough to install this. I do not know if it is just my device but it seems the last few versions of the market did not play nicely.

Thanks for posting it up for us!

You have to push it via adb or terminal emulator. Make sure to have a backup just in case.

You might not need to use adb. If you have an update on the market currently then you just may need to uninstall it. Go into settings > applications > manage applications > downloaded, then scroll to market and select it. After than see if there is an option to uninstall updates. If there is do it and then try installing the new one without opening the market first.

I have found the same result. Since the newly redesigned market was pushed to my OG Droid quite some time ago, it would only show 3 of my 174 apps, paid or otherwise. Since installing this update in now recognizes all my apps!!! Yeah! Bravo! (does happy dance) Good work!!!!!!

Noticed with update market opens faster and apps load faster. Previous version irritated me as was so slow.

My phone just updated... and it screwed up my Market. Now only recognizes half my installed apps, and has 3 apps I currently use under a listing of 'not installed'

tried to uninstall, and it just reinstalled it and created the same problem.

WHAT THE (@#$(*()$*&
