Paid Android apps coming to 99 more countries, top app rankings now live in Android Market
A number of people are reporting that paid apps are appearing in Android Market on their phones, priced in local currency, and they bought them using local debit or credit cards, despite that the feature is not supposed to be completely rolled until next week. Before that Android users in these countries were forced to download the goods as .apk files from dark and shady places, if they wanted to have this or that one on their phones.
Furthermore, Android Market is now addressing its app curation issues, by listing Top Paid, Top Free, Editor's picks, Top Grossing apps and so on. With more than 250 000 applications, it had become an issue finding what's relevant for you on Android Market, and we are glad to see that Google is charging hard to resolving these problems.
