I know it shouldn’t bother me this much — but it does. As a creature of habit, I fear change. I believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That being said, I hate the Google Play update. I want the old name back. I want the old icon back. Since letters signed in my own blood to Google’s HQ most likely wont accomplish anything (aside from landing me in the state pen), I’ve been forced to find less creepy ways of dealing with this update. I’ve changed it back.
While there are a few ways of changing the Google Play icon back to the original Android Market icon, the easiest way is to simply download this handy app from iPaulPro, developer of one of my longtime favorite note taking apps, StatusNotes. He’s made a quick application, suitably named Market, that requires no special permissions of any kind, and is essentially a shortcut to the Google Play app store. Simple. Easy. And helps me hold onto the old world. At least for a little longer.
