YouTube employee outs Google Play Store redesign

0. phoneArena posted on 07 Apr 2013, 15:14

An employee of YouTube, Eileen Rivera, has put up a screenshot of a redesigned Google Play Store adding a more colorful look with a focus on the different categories and "Games" now has its own separate section; we're not sure that Google took too kindly to the idea of one of its employees spilling the beans as Ms. Rivera's Google+ page has been removed...

For years now, all we've been hearing from android fanboys is diatribe about "boring tiles", so I can't stop laughing now that google is taking a simplistic approach toward design.

same with glass backs... (nexus 4, xperia Z.. ).

Fandroids (2010): HA! you have a glass back so stupid, gonna break

Fandroids (2012): So beautiful.. best. idea. ever

though admittedly i'm a bit of a fandroid myself, i can see the irony.

I feel like the 3 dots, and swipe style interface was a bit of a jip off wp7. But i guess they're still essentially different.. in a sense

I've never seen a complaint about boring tiles. Stale design, maybe. Skeumorphism, maybe. I'm a minimalist. I like Google's approach. Microsoft also has the right idea.

Where not sure, however, that the idea was for Googlers to pass this information along to the public.

...I think you mean, "We're not sure"

Looks better than the current design.
