Play Home - Tablet

Are you sick of the current Google Play Store appearance?  Do you desire a more simplistic design and user experience?  Well, fortunately, Google has spent the last several months redesigning the Google Play Store to make it even more user friendly and easier to find apps and products.

Google calls the new Play Store update a “fresh new look,” which will make tablet and smartphone users find content quicker.  For example, similar apps, music, movies, and magazines will be grouped together so that you can easily find the material that suits your interests.  The idea behind the Play Store is a unified marketplace to find apps and other content in an efficient manner.  Each subsequent Play Store update certainly adds to the usability.

The latest version of the Play Store is version 4.0.25 and is rolling out starting now to smartphones and tablets running Android 2.2 or higher.  Unfortunately, Google estimates it will take a few weeks before every single Froyo+ device has the Play Store update.
