New Android Market Hits The Streets
It just came to our attention that Google had been thinking about showering us with gifts in July. First, we see the arrival of Google +. Now, we can see that today is the day when the new version of the Android market has made its appearance. If you followed at least a little bit of Google IO, you may remember that this new market is supposed to be loaded with more goodies than just apps. The new market gives you the option to browse and purchase movies and books straight from the market in the same way that you buy apps. The apks have been spotted and made available throughout the internet, and of course, our forums. The installation package can be found in several threads across the site, one such thread was started yesterday by XDA member Kevin001111. However, there are dozens of threads about it. Some chefs have even started including it in their roms. The best part is that it doesn’t seem to be device specific, but it does not seem to be optimized for tablets just yet.
Please give it a shot and leave some feedback and your thoughts about it.
You can find more information in the application thread.

An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
