AppBrain has just updated their Android app to version 5.0 with some pretty cool changes. You can head over to their announcement post to read all about that, but that isn’t the main point of interest to emerge. Towards the bottom of their new app description they mention that while the latest version still features the Fast Web Installer function (in fact it is improved), it probably won’t work much longer. Why not? Well, it wasn’t by their own choice.
Google has disabled the ability in their most recent update to the Android Market, hinting at something they first showed off back at Google I/O: a completely revamped web version of the Android Market with the ability to push downloads to your handset. We already saw signs of these changes in a recent backend overhaul that added in extra sample images, a hi-res logo graphic, and an optional YouTube promo video.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Android Market is about to take it to the next level, silencing many critics in the process. A main sour spot among most techies, the Android Market certainly won’t be getting worse. Any improvement is a great one, but this one looks to be the big kahuna. When and if they throw in Google Music (and maybe even Google Books) we are really talking. Now when are they going to announce Gingerbread and this new Market? That’s the questions that remains.
