The Android team team took to their official developer blog today to talk Play Store, specifically, how it deals with tablets. Android’s tablet market share has been skyrocketing, and isn’t about to slow down with the holiday season fast approaching.
To better help new and current tablet users find the applications and games tailor-made for their larger screened devices, Google will be implementing a new “Designed for Tablets” section in the Google Play Store. This can be the default view when searching through Top Paid, Top Free, Top New Free, and other tabs in the Play Store. The Android teams stresses that this will be a huge opportunity for developers to gain some extra exposure, all they need to do now is quit dragging and get to writing their apps with tablet users in mind. Let’s just hope they don’t go making any of them exclusive to specific tablets.
Changes will go into effect November 21st and if you’re a developer, head over to the source link for helpful tips on how you can get your app optimized for tablets.
