You might be aware that Android Market has been officially renamed to Android Play and it has finally got a good look. Though the update to Android Market is not a big one and such updates comes very often, the name change is a big effect and first such instance ever seen by Google Android team. We are not sure whats the reason why Marketplace was renamed as Google Play Store, we guess it’s the name Google that would have made the impact, as Android Market looked like an Android product.

There are lot many interesting things which you might see it help worthy and one of them is the ability of Google Play to store the searches history of what you have searched before on the Google Play Store on your device.

So when you feel that your Play Store is quite slow in responding you might need to tweak it with various settings.

    This article is misleading. The Play Store keeps a record of everything you ever downloaded and there is no way to clear it. It can be accessed both through google dashboard and various methods in the play store. Anyone with access to you account or phone can view it at will and there is no way to remove, block or clear it.

      This article was about the searches removed from that specific device search box and not from the synced account.

    I have been surfing on-line more than three hours today, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
