Extend arm. Turn hand so palm is facing up. Rotate about the elbow so palm connects with forehead…
hahahahaahh my friends on there!
It was a really stupid move to change the name from Market to Play, it makes no logical sense.
you make no logical sense….
honestly though, they probably spend 500,000 dollars picking out that name and icon.
everyone complaining that it “makes no sense” needs to get a life.
YEAH I KNOW RIGHT THEY SPENT A LOT OF MONEY WE NEED TO LOVE IT
Google really cocked this one up. “Hmm, I want to go buy a todo list app… hmm… i’ll check Google Play”
They could have named the icon “PLay Market” at first to ease people into the idea. Then in 3-6 months drop the “Market” from the icon label.
Also if you made a shortcut on your homescreen to the market it was deleted and an open space sits where it once was. It would have gone a long way to place the Play shortcut exactly where the market was previously. Most people would have probably clicked it without thinking and this would have all been avoided.
I’m not sure how they can do this, when the upgrade happens it stays Market, then warns you upon the next launch that it’s changing to “Play Store,” complete with icons and pictures and a confirmation request.
Some people must just be idiots, or it’s android fanboys who hate the name trolling.
