Download and Install the new Android Market UI on all phones with Android 2.2+

Android Market by Google has just got a new update! The new Android Market has got a totally new UI which is based on Swipe; you just have to swipe across to move from one category to another. Google has also added books and movies to the Android market with this update. Starting today, you can rent movies and buy books straight from market. Movies can be rented starting from $1.99, this amazing feature of renting movies and buying books is currently available only in the US region.

New Market is available only on Smartphones with Android 2.2+ and require’s a Google account. Google has started rolling out this update in the US market but it will take some time to roll this update all over the world. But, I managed to grab a copy of this update from Google’s US rollover.

Here is the Download link to the file : Download New Android Market APK file. You just have to download this APK file and install it on your device. (It works on all SmartPhones with Android 2.2+) This update is totally free and I have personally tested it on the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 (Android 2.3.3) and the HTC Desire S (Android 2.3.3)

Here is the video from Google which explains the new features of this UI Update:

The new Market UI looks very similar to the box-like UI of the Windows Phone 7. So, does it mean that Android is taking any UI tips from WP7 ?

This Update shows signs that Android Market is creating proper differentiation between applications and also adding new and improved features to it! Do try it and let us know your view and experience..

    Hmm.. I am an Android user, I use it every day at least as much time as I use Windows 7 on my desktop.

    I’m wondering, why isn’t this an automatic update? I remember all of the previous Android updates being sent to everyone’s phone and automatically updating..As opposed to having seek it out, especially when its such a major update!

    I’m excited to check this update out on my Android device right now.
