Broken and waiting for updates It's hard to comment on the app itself when the previous version is broken and unusable. My app (at version 1.0.28) shows the message "Your client is out of date. It will be automatically updated shortly." After 4 days my patience is pretty well spent. I realize there are workarounds for downloading apps, but call them what they are, lame excuses. The fact is, one of the more critical applications for an Android device was rendered unusable by an unknown change and there is nothing a user can do. Android is a great platform, the Galaxy tab is great device, this app however has nothing on the Apple market apps.
galaxytab 10.1 I got the 10.1 for free, and i would have paid for it if i didnt. Its better than the ipad 2, i dont know why so many people are so upset about the tab itself. Its, thiner, lighter, brighter, has a widerscreen thats better for movies, also alowws me to fit it into my coat pocket, just barely, and more customizable than the ipad. Also has a better name, and with ics, a better os that doesnt tie you down. I guess its always the same with android. You need to be smart enough to understand it. Apple is for old people who dont understand tech. Android is for the tech people. As for the market app itself. Meh. Could use improvement, but i dont spend much time browsing for aps so it doesnt bother me.
android market not working on my new samsung 10.1 hours of my life wasted! Surely this error was picked up in your qa division? This is ridiculous. Im getting the update error. Now i cant even see newly installed apps. The apps are installed as reported by android market but i cannot find them. I am beginning to regret purchasing android. Seems that everyone is complaining to a faceless entity. Wheres the pr machine and technical assistance?
Works good after upgrade I had my Samsung galaxy 7 plus on automatic update and it never downloaded the updated android version which made the android market not work like others have stated. Changed the setting on the tablet to manual and received the updated android software. I was then able to update android market. Everything working good here now. Google should have place something on the internet about this problem. The layout of new software is different but easy to get use to.
How long will Android Market be awful? For example, try searching on how to enter a rating - nothing useful. What is intuitive, useful, or helpful about Settings-Purchase History-User Reviews...and opening a browser tab rather than staying in the Market app? Why isn't searching the (Google!) Market 1/100 as useful as a plain ol' Google web search? I'm trying to stay Android loyal, but my Galaxy 10.1 tablet is an infuriatingly slow, poorly designed, miserable iPad wannabe that I am close to trashing (would be cruel to donate it to charity) to give in to Apple...
Dumb Chicken and Egg Problem Dear Google, You updated your market app to make it more secure from malware. Good. You want people to use the new market app because it is more secure. Good. You made it a policy to block the old market app from the new market so that people will have to use the new market app. Good idea, but how to update the old market app when you can't access the android market? All the geniuses working at Google and this is the best they can do? I refuse to buy Apple because of what it stands for, but at least their stuff works!
