Android Market Web Updated With New Install History Graph


However subtle, the Android Market just continues to evolve getting better and better every few months. Whether it’s the newest Market for Android or the web version of the Android Market we’ve definitely come a long ways.

Today’s latest improvement comes to you in the form of a handy graph showing you the history of installs for a particular app. I snatched these screenies from Android Police showing the Swiftkey X (phone) app on the web version of the Android Market and you can see off to the side is the new graph.

You may be wondering why the sudden spike of installs for Swiftkey X. Well, the app was formerly known as Swiftkey Beta for what seemed like the longest time. When it finally came out of beta, it gained the “X” in the name and received a lot of press for being one of the best keyboard apps the Android Market has to offer (and my current fave).

I’m definitely liking where the Android Market is headed. You guys have an ideas to further improve the Android Market (besides the horrible 15 minute refund window)?

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Seems kinda pointless without a scale but that is probably because I was hoping to spy on my competition. It would be nice if Google made this available to developers instead of forcing them to generate their own version in excel.

  2. I e-mailed the google market team and I definitely believe that it urgently needs password input for ANY app install/update similar to iOS, leaving your phone unattended for any period of time can result in unauthorized app purchases and relying on third party “vault type” apps isn’t viable solution.

    1. Holy cow, that is a GREAT idea. I don’t know why I never thought of that. Recently, my Playstation Portable was stolen and the thief used my PSN account on the device to rack up over $400 of game installs. Password before install would have helped in that situation too =/

      1. Oh damn, that was you? I’d give it back but…you know…I like it.

      2. I thought someone did that to me too, but it turns out, I did it when I was drunk! LOL. As far as your phone goes, just use the software that’s already there to lockdown that 3D beast. The lockscreen is for more than just pretty weather scenes. LOL.

        On a serious note, that stinks about someone stealing from you. Bastards.

    2. The beauty of Android, is that, unlike iOS, you have a choice. You can download one of the dozen or so lock apps on Android market place, and then lock down the marketplace app so it requires a PIN to use. Voila, problem solved.

      1. I really dig Android, however your comment makes me wonder if you just buy the ” open” propaganda. When it comes to security you can’t rely on a third party apps when it can be built into the OS, I dont use a taskkiller, but for those that do your “choice” is rendered useless. Android has come a long way and I love it, but you have to recognize when something is better, the password authentication for apps ( and in app purchases) in iOS is a better system, hands down.

  3. I just want everyone to know that I posted in the contest thread and I think its the first time I posted on this site where I wasn’t making fun of something or someone. This website is slowly making me a better person.

    1. For that, I applaud you. <3

  4. Is it just me or do the ‘user reviews’ appear in a seemingly random order? I would like to see review reported in a chronological order with most recent first.

  5. On a subject. Google should stop calling these stats “Installs”. They surely don’t include the installs sold via alternative markets, so they can’t give you the total install base anyways.
    And Swiftkey X was a “free app” on Amazon few days ago.

  6. One thing….the online market needs a way of removing old devices from the list, not just hiding them. Even when hiding them they still show the apps I’ve installed previously on other phones.

  7. So @Chris Chaves, you prefer SwiftKey X over Swype? I’ll have to give it a try…
