Google has looked at the current landscape of the Android Marketplace and understands the difficulty newcomers have to overcome to stand out in a crowded app market. In a developer session, Google has added four new areas which will affect the Featured Android Marketplace section and allow new apps to get some recognition. By also adding “Users Also Viewed” and “Users Also Installed” section to the Android Marketplace, Android – lovers will be able to see what others are seeing and thus providing more exposure to new high-quality apps – or at least apps that are viral enough to get recognition in some form.
These new sections include “Trending Apps”, “Top New Paid apps”, “Top New Free apps” and “Top grossing” – which will display apps that are making the most money. Go figure.
