Alright, so the new Android Market was announced by Google earlier today featuring an all new UI, widget, integration with Google Videos and multiple Gmail accounts. A few hours later, we actually got our hands on the new Market v3.0.26 (signed by Google) and I quickly uploaded it for everyone to enjoy and test out for yourselves.
Given the sketchiness of downloading apps anywhere but from the Android Market, a few of you were (understandably so) apprehensive about trying out the new Market and installing in your phone. Even more of you didn’t even have a phone equipped with Android 2.2 or higher (one of Google’s prerequisites for the app).
So, it’s for you guys that I’ve gone ahead and shot a quick (read: rough) video showing off the new Market and its Google Video rental service, simply to give you guys a better idea of what to expect in the coming weeks.
Oh- and if you change your mind about downloading the new Market, well — the link is still waiting for you. You can always go back to the old Market following this simple steps:
- Go into your phone’s Settings
- Select “Manage Applications”
- Select the “All” tab at the top
- Scroll down to Market app and select it
- Select “Uninstall Updates”
- Now have your old Market back!
