Download: New Android Market Version 3.0.26


The new Android Market that was just announced is now available for download.  It will only work on phones running 2.2 or higher, but should install right over the top of whatever market your device has.  And as you’ll see in the gallery below, it’s exactly what we saw in the preview video that Google released earlier.  At first we were questioning the WP7 styling, but we’re ready to take that back.       

Download:  com.android.vending-new.apk

To install, download the file from above, tap on it and click “Install.”

Cheers @bigxie and @Eminembdg!

    I don’t like the new market.. I like the previous version MUCH better.. I DON’T watch movies, or read books on this tiny ass screen! Please make some sort of fix, or option, to revert back to the other display type.

    Looks cool, but can’t get it to install on DX running Liberty GB 0.9. It just brings up the install dialog and appears to start installing but then says “Application not installed.” Any ideas?

    dam i love this new android(:

    Anyone noticed (or found a way around) not updating all apps?  For example, I have eight applications that need updating and the only option I see to update is all of them at once.  I can’t find a way to update just one or two.  The only option I get is to “Open” or “Uninstall”.

    • Jonathonflores6958

      Same thing I got. But now it says I have one app to update (facebook) and I can’t update that one single app. I’m assuming it wasn’t ready for the public. Just my assumption though.

    • Jonathonflores6958

      Nvm. Suddenly there’s an update button on the app itself

    How do I Get the NEW ANDROID MARKET App
    That Link Does Not Work Or What Program do I Open it With  com.android.vending-new.apk

  • http://www.facebook.com/queamante David Queamante

    Gah! the updating feature seems to be broken?  The only options I see on my “apps that are ready to update” are Open, Uninstall, and Allow Automatic Updates.  Where’s the Update button?

    • Jonathonflores6958

      On my DX (I’m sure the device doesn’t matter) there’s an update button in the top right corner of the updates page. Not the app page itself. It said, on mine, x2 meaning two updates needed to be updated. I haven’t found a way to update individual apps so far which seems to me to be a fail bc sometimes I don’t want to update all the apps. Hope this helps.

    My wife and i ended up being quite ecstatic Albert could deal with his research because of the precious recommendations he got using your web page. It’s not at all simplistic just to possibly be giving freely guides that people today might have been trying to sell. So we understand we now have the writer to thank for this. These explanations you made, the easy web site menu, the relationships your site give support to foster – it’s got all astonishing, and it is helping our son and our family recognize that this subject matter is satisfying, and that is especially mandatory. Thank you for the whole lot!

    Thank you so much Kellex!!!!! This does really feel like WIN7 at first, but you can really tell after going into apps and whatnot they have really stuck to the core designs of the Market from which it began. It is a 110% Improvement over the rotunda version and I do like it a lot better. This makes everything more detailed and not so boring scrolling through looking for new apps to mess with, and with all the new rating system it is better than ever.I would have thought originally that it would have self installed. I had just got a good deal on a brand new Incredible that had the old market on it, and when I opened the market for acouple minutes the new style with the rotunda of apps at the top with green bg loaded up. Maybe since this is a larger update for the market it has to be manually updated? Anybody care to comment?
