Android Market update leaks with default Auto Update (w/APK)
A new update to the Android Market has begun rolling out to some handsets. The update brings the Market app to version 3.3.11 and adds a few very nice new features. And, since we know that some of you may have trouble with waiting for the update to make it to your handset, we've also got the link to the leaked APK, so you can manually update your device. 

There are a few new features in the settings of the Market app in this update. The best new feature is the option to toggle Auto Updates to default on. Until now, you've had to toggle individual apps to Auto Update, but now you can make it the default for all apps, which makes things a lot smoother. There is also a new setting to only let Auto Update run when you're on WiFi, just in case you're worried about data usage. 

The other changes are pretty minor including: auto-add shortcuts to homescreen for new apps, a voice command button in the search menu, a star rating chart in the app info, smaller font and a new app icon. 

Be warned, there have been reports that this update is a bit buggy on Honeycomb, so update your tablets at your own risk. If you want to grab the APK you can get it here, or on this mirror. Otherwise, it'll likely be rolling out to handsets pretty soon.
