I have downloaded it from my galaxy tab 10.1 and works fine, just a little flashy though, but no big deal ...

Android is most definitely play catch up here, but as usual Android users don't care to acknowledge.
But nice UI anyways.

Just saying. If Apple was in Android's position here, it would be a whole different story. I'm sure even you can agree to that.

When you mean different position on what aspect you referred to? The fans? The acceptance and popularity?

barely reminiscent of the wp7 marketplace. and thats only in the swiping gestures. and even then its a stretch. the design and graphics dont appear like wp7 at all.

Thanks for the comment! Android has that bloc and other lookalike features since 2.1 saw some apps using it before. Google is just showing devs it can be done

finally androids market has cought up to the competition. it looks like its more fun to browse than any other market. i definitely approve of this. apple still has them beat on functionality thanks to backing up apps in itunes and the ability to go in the app store from the iphone and look at your complete purchase history and redownload anything you dont have anymore. but onn the flip side, the single marketplace for apps, movies, and books is something apple should emulate. if only music was inluded in the new android market.

There are leaks telling there is a music vendor on and probably close to release. And you mean check uninstalled paid apps? They appear At the bottom. But now it finally says not installed

Unexpectedly downloaded on my Nexus S 4G while I was using the Android Market earlier. Makes the UI much nicer abs friendlier. Finally, the Market can compete aesthetically. :)

I just downloaded the latest version of the marketplace off ofwww.4shared.com and its pretty cool. I'd say that it's an improvement over the old ui.

Doesn't anyone know if google has any exact pla as to how they are rolling out the market update. It been rolling out for like three weeks now and I still haven't received it yet. Maybe its cause I live in neb. And we get everything late.
