Android Market gets new filters and sections

Google has added new features to Android Market to make it more user friendly, as the search giant continues its two-day domination of the tech news agenda.

As of today, Google's official application store for Android powered kit features application charts for new free, paid and top grossing titles, which you’ll find front and centre on the homepage.

Also new is an editors’ choice section, wherein you’ll be able to see the best apps as rated by the store’s staff. To help you find stuff you’ll like based on other users' download habits there’s now ‘related apps’ on each page, too.

And in a sop to devs, Google has added an icon for the 150 most prominent developers which will be used on the Android Market so it's easier for consumers to find other examples of their wares.

Fernando Delgado, Product Manager at Android Market, told delegates and devs at the Google I/O event: "Whether you’re looking for the most popular apps, hot new apps, or just the very best apps available, we want to help make sure that you find what you're looking for.”

News of the Big G’s moves comes after a slew of earlier announcements at its annual conference, including the Music Beta service iTunes challenger as well plans to launch a new iteration of the Android OS in the fourth quarter of this year.
