Google Wants To Make Android Market Better

As much as we love Android Market, we know it has some weaknesses. The categories could be a bit more specific, the reviews could still be better, and well, the search feature needs to be more exact. Luckily, the Android Team is hard at work and listening to user complaints.

In an Android Discussion Group, Google's Dan Morrill are looking to improve Android Market by adding some cool features:

  • Separate category for themes
  • Adding more sorting options
  • Creating a desktop/web version of Android Market

Though these features are simply some ideas being tossed around by the Android Team, it is good to know that Google is keeping an ear on the community. Android Market is a great way to deliver applications to users but it definitely needs to get better. Of the listed ideas, we would absolutely LOVE to use a web version of Android Market--browsing apps would be so much easier.

What do you guys think? How would you improve Android Market?
