Google’s Android Market website has been getting some exciting new updates recently. On Friday it received an Email developer option that lets users contact the developers of an app via the website, and today it’s been reported that we’ve got a set of new filters. Users can now filter reviews by device model, app version and specific star rating. Now you don’t have to sift through pages of reviews just to find out what you need to know about the app – just set the filters according to what you want.
This way, users can avoid reading bogus reviews i.e. apps crashing because it doesn’t work on their phone even though it was explicitly stated by the developer that it’s only working on certain devices, reviews for outdated versions of the app etc. While it’s not going to help solve the fragmentation issue that has been plaguing Android devices, it does help alleviate the problem a bit – by making it easier for users to find apps that run on their phones. Check out the updates on the Android Market website today (if you don’t see it, it probably hasn’t rolled out to you yet). And don’t forget about the 10 cent promotion Google is having right now.
