Google's Web-Based Android Market

Google Announces Web-Based Android Market

At today's big event in Mountain View, Google announced a long-anticipated feature for Android: a web-based Android app market. The store is a one-stop location for both free and paid Android apps, similar to Apple's App Store.

The apps are broken down into categories like Business, Entertainment, Sports, and Social — with many, many more app categories included. Users can also browse through the most popular free and paid apps. And once you purchase or download an app through the store, it's instantly transferred to your device; no syncing required!

Individual app pages allow developers to personalize and include more information about their apps. Sharing and social media tools are built into the store, so it's easy to send apps via Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter to friends.
