The desktop version of Android Market has long offered suggestions of similar apps for users perusing the the repository of software for their smartphones, but results just got a lot more relevant. Rather than simply offering up apps based on category, developer, or popularity, the Android Market is now suggesting apps based on what other users are doing. While viewing an app, a new sidebar item gives us a look at what other users who viewed the same app also considered. Downloading shows us what other users with the app have installed.

It looks a lot like what you find on Amazon for suggesting additional purchases or aiding in finding just the right thing for you. Nothing major, but a subtle change that we think will bring a lot of added value to searching the Android Market online.
