Android Market showing local currencies now!

| October 5, 2010 | Reply

Well it’s about time!  The Android Team has finally taken a necessary step in making the Android Market more user friendly by converting the cost of apps to reflect your local area.  What do we mean?  Previously when you took a look through the Android Market you might have noticed some of the prices were shown in foreign currencies.  Some of these apps would show the approximate cost in US dollars, but you still had to do some research for other apps yourself or just click purchase and wait for the Google Checkout receipt for confirmation of what you actually paid.  Bravo to Android Team for listening and making it easier for us to use the Market.  Now if we could only get more search options…  Drop us a comment below and let us know if you have already seen this change, and if it is working properly for you.

Long gone are the days when you need to Google or guess the price of an app that might show in the market as 900 Yen or 2 Euros.  The Android team has made a slight tweak to market prices, showing them in your local currency.  As you can see from the screenshot above, an estimated or approximated price is listed rather than some random currency you have zero understanding of.  Man, it’s about time.  And thank you team Android.
