Android Market + Cloud = Android Web Market, something we all have been waiting for.

| February 2, 2011 | 2 Replies

Today, Google announced that it’s going to the cloud and has launched a web-based Android Market on the net. This will now let you download apps to your android device (regardless if it’s a tablet or phone) from the internet. For example, say you are browsing the Android Market on the internet and find an interesting app. You can download that app just by clicking on it and seconds later it will be downloading to your phone. There are also new ways to share your favorite apps. You can now share them by posting on Twitter and all of your followers will know about it. In addition to catering to the consumer, they are catering to the developers to by giving them more ways to promote their apps. Google has also included Youtube support and higher resolutions pictures. This allows developers to further promote their apps by showing a Youtube video of the app and letting them bring in better looking pictures to attract consumers. So what more could Google do to top that? How about launching the web-based Android Market to as soon as the demo started. That’s right, that means you can  go and start browsing and downloading apps from your computer now. Go to http://market.android.com/ to see the new market. Try it out and let us know what you think of the new web-based Android Market in the comment section below.

    I wonder how this will affect AppBrain. Not really much of a need for them anymore…

    I’ve been waiting just about an hour and still have not received a download yet. It says completed but…..we’ll see what happens. I’m sure their servers are taking a beating. ;-)
