New Android Market 2.2.6
XDA member phoezies let us know about the newest version of Android Market 2.2.6, which is ready for download. The new version comes with an updated UI (as described by ElCondor in this article), so you can access all the information about an application on a single page without the need to navigate across different tabs. The app detail page also includes related apps to make it easier to find more stuff of interest to you. Several new categories were also added like Widgets and Live Wallpapers.
Developers are now able to upload applications up to 50 MB. The old limit was only 25 MB, which had caused issues for some apps (especially games). Lastly, the refund window has also been reduced from 24 hours down to 15 minutes since most refunds occur within minutes of purchase.
Some sites state it´s working on Android 1.6 and up but others say only for 2.2 and up, please let us know how is working on your version.
