You always wanted to do this: pick an application while you’re at your computer and immediately begin to download to your mobile device you carry. No links, no QR Codes, nothing. Now it is possible for anyone who has a phone running Android. Yes, Google has a leg up on competition and was the first to launch this feature.
The announcement of the new functionality was done on Wednesday, at the same event in which the purchases were made in-app. So that everything works according to plan, the company has redesigned the Android Market. The web version of the app store Google finally deserves its access
For starters, a new design. It was time that the site of the Android Market for the love of God shouted for someone to give her a new dress. The new layout is much nicer, with quick filtering by categories and the most downloaded applications (the free and paid).Roundabouts also featured help highlight the best that is present at the Market, for those who do not know what you want to download.
After choosing the one application that deserves to be installed directly on your smartphone, just click the Install button. A balloon displays all devices that are currently linked to their Google Account. After choosing one of them, bang!, The application starts to be downloaded almost instantly on the phone.
I auditioned and I’m impressed. I went into the Android Market, chose Advanced Task Killer application and sent it to install it on Motorola Milestone 2. Less than a minute later (30 seconds, well told), there was the app is downloaded and then installed in the machine. Very easy.
If you own a phone with Android, its technology is due to enter the Android Market right now to test this new feature that is just phenomenal.
This is Google listening to our requests on a platform so important. Not enough to invent the remote installation of applications on Android, the company used to include videos in the application pages (which should help in deciding whether to buy or not).
Another novelty of the Market is that developers may provide application-specific prices for different currencies. Soon, a developer who charges $ 5 for an application will be charged 5 dollars for this same software to consumers in Brazil (you know, our purchasing power is lower than the U.S.). Who does not like, will have the option of making automatic conversion before you pay for the application.
