Android market goes live, features many convenient ways to purchase and install apps.
Since Google’s initial foray into the App world, it’s users have had to deal with the rather impractical mobile version of it’s market. The old version (ironically) even lacked such functions as searching and sorting through the thousands of apps available.
This was all rectified today at Google’s Mountain View honeycomb event where the web-based version of it’s Android Market just went live. The market allows its users to access the site from any desktop browser and search or sift through the apps available. User’s can then purchase whatever app they want and it then automatically syncs the said apps to the phone’s on your Google account. This is quite a convenient change especially since users would earlier have had to resort to such apps as appbrain to get information on apps and preview screenshots.
The site, though rather bland, can be accessed here.
