The newly updated Google Play Store

The Google Play Store has received an update to version 3.7.15. Unlike the previous update which brought users the ability to purchase television shows and buy magazine subscriptions, this update simply enhances performance and kills some bugs dead. It also fixes a strange problem that was affecting only Sprint users on 4G who were unable to download apps on occasion, instead receiving "Waiting for network" messages.

If you're the impatient type that can't wait for an update to reach your phone, Android Police has extracted the APK Installation file for your pleasure. You can click on the sourcelink below to select one of the four mirrors to install the APK file as you would sideload any other app. And these files have been signed by Google and are verified to be legit according to the site. On the other hand, considering that the update doesn't do much for non-Sprint users, you could simply choose to wait for the update to hit your handset.

The "My Apps" section is still a total disaster...

v3.4.7 until they fix that horrid area...

*In 3.4.7, you had 2 sections, Installed and Purchased/previously-installed but not currently installed, now you just have installed and all... I have about 70 PAID apps, and sorting through the 300+ apps/themes/crap I have tried out thats listed in the ALL section just to find my paid apps... well thats just bulls**t...

Thankfully, the wonderful people at XDA come through again, v3.4.7 with DPI lock (so I can use a different device DPI but not lose app compatibility) and auto-update disabled!

Google should just officially invest in XDA (if they don't already), those guys have done more for Android than any manufacturer or carrier. Hell, they're probably tied with Google for how much they've furthered Android.

Invest, not acquire though... I'd prefer XDA retain their autonomy.

Thanks for clearing that up... I know quite a few would stay, but even more would vacate XDA if it was purchased by an entity like Google...

An interesting and yet TOTALLY HORRIFYING thought is if Apple bought XDA, because you know they would shot it down or turn it into a C**pple paradise

EDIT: bloody hell, can you imagine that? Android sales would see a VISIBLE drop! I know of a few small no-name tablet MFG's that troll XDA for stuff/code to steal (er use...)! THE HORROR

Huh, I have had this for a couple of weeks - maybe it was included with CM10 add ons for JB....

It wasn't just Sprint on 4G. My EVO 3D when connected via HTC internet pass-through had the same problem.

A huge inconvenience with the Play store, under the My Apps section, All Apps.... like most people I've downloaded hundreds of apps over the years and with no order to them, not even alphabetical, is a huge annoyance. Also, if I scroll down past 200 apps, select one to install, and when I go back to the all app list.... it starts from the beginning of the list instead of where I left off. So I have to scroll through the 200 apps again just to continue searching where I was before reinstalling the app. They definitely need to put some order in the "all downloaded apps" section instead of just 1 super long list.

I can't purchase things using my Spring Bill. Supposedly it's cause I have a Sprint Employee plan (indirect agent plan). Does anyone know a work around?
