Motorola plans its own Android app store called SHOP4APPS?
Using Google Search, Android and Me stumbled upon a URL that revealed a Motorola Android based app store called SHOP4APPS. Android and Me tried to load the store onto a CLIQ and the program had to be forced close. A little after that, the Schaumberg based company removed the Android app store completely. The store is designed to be available from any Android powered device and from a PC web browser. SHOP4APPS has a free mobile client that allows for  installation of your purchases. The MyLocker section allows you to see the history of the downloads you have made from the store including the name of the app and date purchased. You will have the ability to browse the store from a desktop browser, make a purchase from your PC, store it in MyLocker and then download it onto your phone. You will also get an alert when a new version of one of your current apps is ready to be downloaded, and apps can be transferred to a new mobile phone. Now that the site is down, and the cat is out of the bag, we might have to wait for the official word from Motorola for any more information.

Apple has iTunes so it doesnt need a web browser based version. Android just needs better apps in general.

Yeah it would be nice if google did a good PC version of their store. At least to search and find good apps. Devs could include more life sized screen shots etc. I actually find it amazing that Apple nor Google have full browse-able PC versions of their store on the net. I think the barcode scanning is a sweet idea and would love to browse the market on my PC and scan in apps I like.
