How to Get New Android Market Place – Download Apk

Android Market LogoSometimes small small updates brings a smile for all of the mobile users. Be it a firmware update or any news about an update is just like a spark and we really feel to experience the same as soon as possible and possibly before its made public. We have seen with the Google Plus invites and now with another such thing that is with an all new Android Market Place which has just now got a face lift. Though the last update for the Android Market Place was a mere cosmetic change with a new interface which was not that major but now the new update for the Android Market Place is really refreshing and is much more appealing than ever before. So, in the due course of the article we will see on how you can update your phone so that you will get to use the new Android Market Place even before your friend or fellow Android user gets the same. You can also see that the Android Market Place has also got an all new icon which can be seen in the screen shot below.

Home Screen

Though this update for the Android Market Place is in the beta stages, and is pushed as a final version in some select parts of US, we will tell you on how you can get the swanky new update for your Market Place. This new update for the market Place is dubbed as the version with the version number as 3.0.26 and can be applied to any Android Phone irrespective of the model number and the place from where the phone belongs from. The best part and also the highlight of this new update is that if you have selected an option that is “Automatic Update” then you will get all the updates automatically and you don’t have to again set for automatic updates again which was the case with the older version of Android Market Place.

If you have a look at the new Market Place then its really streamlined and showcases the Android apps in a much more intuitive manner than before and also it gives a whole new lot of options. As soon as the market place opens up you will see that the “Featured” applications section is being shown where you will find a change compared to the previous Android Market version that the applications now shown are in the beautiful icon format than the earlier’s list format which was not that much visually appealing.

Featured

From the featured applications, if you have a look towards the left of the screen, you will see “Categories” section wherein you will see that there are many categories which are shown in the list format with a green theme colored pattern. Next towards right, there will be “Featured” section which we saw and after that towards right the next section is the “Top Paid” section wherein you will find all the top paid applications as shown in the screen shot below. All the “Top Paid” applications are shown in the 2 x 2 tiled format which again is a very visually appealing change compared to the earlier version of Android Market Place where everything was in the list format.

Categories

Now, after the “Top Paid” section, the next section is the “Top Free” applications section wherein all the applications are shown in the 2 x 2 format where in all the popular applications are shown that are right from Google Plus to the Angry birds to the facebook application, all free applications are listed at this section as the name itself suggests that its a section of free applications.

Top Paid

Next to the Top Free applications, you will see that there is a section called “Top Grossing” where in a mix of Top free as well as Top paid applications are grossed and are listed at this place. You can see the screenshot below wherein the section of Top Grossing section is being shown.

Top Grossing

After this there are two new sections which have been added in this version of Android Market Place which are the “Top New Free” as well as the “Trending” sections as you can see in the below screen shot. Also, in these two sections all the applications are listed in the 2 x 2 icon format wherein all the applications are shown in an intuitive icon format unlike earlier’s overall view of the list format where in you had to go through many taps to get into the individual sections, but in this market place, all you need to do is to just slide the glass so as to go through various sections of the applications which are there in the Android Market Place. While in the Top new Free, all the applications which are new are listed here and in the “Trending” section you will gett o see all the applications which are downloaded maximum number of times by the users are being listed in this section as you can see in the below screen shots. So, now lets proceed and check out on how you can update your existing Android Market Place with the new one.

Top New PaidTop New FreeTrending

    I have a Galaxy Gio and any help would be appreciated!

      which is the error message?

  • Juila Hayward

    I’ve found whilst updating a couple of apps, when I click on update, it takes me to the Open screen instead of install. Therefore, the new app update is not installed. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled from the Market and it was still the old version. I assumed there was something wrong with the Market. Therefore I went to settings, clicked on the Market app, cleared data and cache.. Then i reinstalled the app and I got the new version. Has anyone else found this?

    Hi Neal,

    I recently purchased an european unlocked Samsung Galaxy S2. For some reason it did not come with the Android Market App icon. I bumped into your web and followed ur instructions, but after downloading it, it doesn’t run and shows the following message: Sorry! The application MARKET (processcom.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

    Do you believe there is a way I could make it work on this phone?

    • Peter

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy S2 is running on the latest version (I believe): 2.3.4. I am located in USA.

I don’t know where to go to open and install the file. Please, Please!

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

          I don’t know how stupid market place is that this shit doesn’t come installed by default

      thanks buddy for your kind words, we look forward for your continued support!

  • http://www.daleisphere.com Dale Dietrich

    Thanks for this.

    The first commenter asked where to put this on the phone and the response was, anywhere on the phone. Errr … OK. I’m a newb to the world of Android. So, assuming I put it ‘anywhere’, then what do I do with it. Can these apk files be run like an app. How do you run it on the phone to run the install?

    Not to be too much of a fear monter here, but wouldn’t the android marketplace app be a perfect vector for malware? I don’t know the folks at androiddevices and no doubt this is on the up and up. But still, shouldn’t this, of all apps, be an app you wait to get from Google. If they knock out your marektplace with this and replace it with some kind of malware, a typical new probably wouldn’t know how to get the original marketplace back. But I suppose the logical answer to this one is, a newb shouldn’t be attempting this anyway.

    OK, I guess I answered my own question. User beware. But I would still like an answer to the apk question if someone is willing. Thanks.

    …Dale

    Hi Neal
    As usual from your simplified instructions, I managed a flawless installation of the new “Market”. The improvement is amazing. As soon as I opened the market after installing this update, eight of my installed applications, bought and free, indicated they had updates. I wonder why the other interface did not detect that these updates were available.

    Anyway, I am wondering how I managed before I discovered this site. Of the numerous other Android/Samsung sites [and there many, believe me] in the net, this is the most functional for me. Keep up with the good work

    What’s the big deal with zipping up stuff with your password? It’s not like as if it’s top secret or sharing confidentiality between friends. If you are honest in dispensing advice, tips and info, do yourself and your fans a favour – save a step for you and me. You don’t need to password it. Unless you get a kick just thinking thousands of fans out there are typing androiddevices.com

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      sorry for the issue you are facing the problem but the only reason why we use password is to encrypt the file so that you will not have any issues like half or improper file downloads!

      • Terry

        No need for encryption to detect corruption – ZIP will tell you if the file is corrupt anyway
