New 4.0 version of Google Play app leaks

A new look is coming to the Google Play app based on a leak of version 4.0.16. Filled with brighter and more colorful images, there seems to be a big change in the default position on automatic updates. Where currently you must opt-in to receive automatic updates for the apps that you have installed, the box is checked off in the new version if you don't want the app to automatically update. Sounds like we could be in for some confusion there.

Missing from the new version of Google Play is the page that you are sent to after clicking on the box to download an app. We expect Google to release this update during Google I/O coming in May. So far, it looks like the changes are all in the way the content is presented. Google Play had about 700,000 apps available back in October, a far cry from the 20,000 apps it had back in December 2009.

I didn't mean it in a bad way. I was talking about the different tab colors for every section. How close minded are you fandroids that take everything the wrong way?

kinda been that way for awhile. Hard to see it as wpish when there are no ridiculously large font headers at the top cut off at the side.

Does anyone know why the Play Store has returned to full downloads for updating apps in the last few weeks?

Proof that given some time what seems like a Crappy OS can make a ASS load of FanFags to back it and become a pretty good OS
