Android Excellence is Google's answer to the new iOS 11 App Store
by Plamen Dimitrov / Jun 14, 2017, 5:43 AM
The digital distribution services of Android and iOS are set to receive some important updates in 2017. Earlier this month, Apple kicked things off by announcing a major redesign of its App Store coming with iOS 11 in September, and it looks like Google isn't planning on idling about either.
Play. Basically, Android Excellence is a place where Google Play editors highlight apps that deliver "great design, technical performance, localization, or device optimization." Currently, the program consists of two sections, Apps and Games, which can be found at the bottom of the renovated Editors' Choice page.On Tuesday, the search engine giant announced and implemented the new “Android Excellence” program to Google
As you can see, the above applications aren't new, which means that any quality app that is well maintained can get a chance to be featured in the rotation.
While Android Excellence isn't anywhere as big of an update as the entire overhaul of Apple's App Store, we suspect that Google is simply employing a slightly different approach here. Instead of introducing everything at one go, Mountain View might simply deliver changes in smaller segments which could add up to a big redesign of Google Play by the end of the year.

Long overdue. Hope would be a thorough and consistent effort.

As a person who used both OSes, App Store is better.

How is it better? I genuinely want to know. I dont want to start a stupid fan boy war. I use both OS's as well and I find that the Play Store has been better for a very long time. App store looks boring and bland. the search mechanics feel better in the play store, it has better and nicer animations It has a great review system and its formatted well where you can easily see whats been added in the update and easy to share the app ( something that took the app store years to add that share feature. the way it shows apps on the main screen that you may like these are my opinion, I want to know yours on how the app store is better?

People get up early with nonsense. Why does there always have to be arguments started by the Apple fanclub on whats better. Why start a debate on whats better. Its not better or worse. Its YOUR store for your platform, and other platforms have their own store. Apples app store is not better than anyone else's and Google Play Store isn't better than anyone else. At least with Android, we have the option to shop at whatever store we want. In your case you all are being forced to only shop at Wal-Mart, while the rest of us don;t have to only shop at Wal-Mart. That alone makes Apple's app store not better than anyone else's.
