With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Google Market 2.2.7 Apk Released
Looks like XDA member Anderdroid has just posted the apk for the newest version the Google Market. 2.2.7 seems to be a minor update (due to the numbering used). However, according to the dev, this new version aims at fixing rendering problems for people using devices with WVGA devices (800×480). The app may have other small fixes as well, so if you liked the 2.2.6, make sure that you give 2.2.7 a quick shot to see if it does anything else.
Please leave some feedback in the thread if you see anything new.
This Market is for people with 480×800+ devices that weren’t properly rendering the new market. APK is attached. Works great on Nexus S and Vibrant.
It may work on 2.1 and 1.6 but I haven’t tried.
Install like a normal apk.
You can find more information in the new market thread.
