Google's second February he presented the news on the Android operating system. At first it seemed as if the company had forgotten to cellphones, officials showed off Android Honeycomb designed for tablets. Important news but eventually squeezed and users of smart phones.
The most significant new mobile Web is the new Android Market. Applications for the Android gave yet to find, install and purchase only through the official Android Market right in mobile phones. Google now also opened a Web version of the Market, which is available at market.android.com through any Internet browser.
After login the user gets the opportunity to browse and search applications between them, like on your mobile. The Web version provides more convenience and more information about the application in one place. Selecting and installing the application itself is way easier than the phone itself. Simply log in using the same Gmail account, you have a cell phone.
The installation proceeds automatically. In the browser, the user selects the application you want to install or buy. After the approval of the program without user intervention to install the phone. The account can be assigned to different phones and the service is able to filter in their appropriate application. My So-called Market Account, then you remember what all the user applications in which the device is installed. Installing your favorite applications to a new phone so just a few minutes.
Another interesting novelty is the possibility Web Market recommending applications. This is done through Twitter, where users can share a link to the selected application. Link from the browser itself can send e-mail. It is interesting that the link to open the program directly in the mobile phone user does not load the Web page applications, but the appropriate item in the Android Market on the phone.
There were also new shopping application itself. Google in particular introduced the possibility to make purchases directly in the program. The authors had the opportunity to sell content directly from the application. An example was demonstrated favorite game TapTap Revenge of Disney Mobile, which users will be able to buy directly in the next music track.
Google claims that the implementation of the shopping application is very simple and Disney's developers confirmed. While the application itself developed over several months, they succeeded in buying implemented in less than five days.
Latest news on Android Market is to support multiple currencies. So far, market prices of the individual programs recalculated based on current exchange rates. Now developers can be selected for the selected currencies own price alone. Similarly, it should work on Windows Marketplace, where such application is in the U.S. and the EU $ 2 € 2. If the programmers at the prices of currencies dialed, continue to be converted.
