New Android Market rolling out, developers gain feedback experiment

I was browsing AppAware this morning and noticed many clients were reporting a new version of Android Market was being pushed out. We asked our Tweeters if they noticed anything new and no one could spot anything different.

After logging in to our Market developer console, I spotted a new feedback experiment that looks ready to roll out. Not a lot of information is available at the moment, but it looks like devs will be able to get reports when their app crashes or freezes.

Just last week someone leaked screens of a new Market client that featured automatic updates, but I have not seen that feature implemented yet. Who knows, maybe I’m just lacking the latest version (I’m at 1713). If you want to check your Market client, go to Settings > Application settions > Manage applications > Market.

Look for another update as we gather more information.

    If I recall an update started to push out last week that enables paypal as a payment option alongside google checkout and carrier billing. That might be what this is.

    I notice this week when I got a fc, there was an option to send feedback to the dev. You can view the report, tells what was running, why the fc, etc.

    Anybody know what version of the Market is on Cyanogen’s new 2.1 D/S rom? Can’t see any gapps in the app list, probably because they were added with that second update package.

  • dezvous

    This is just sweet. I am loving all this support. Hopefully it continues.

    Very sweet feature !
    I also got a feedback with a stack trace on one of my app, from last december (fixed since, but this would have allowed me to fix it sooner :p)

    Looks like my market updated I’m using an htc desire on vodafone malta, unfortunately I can’t say I am noticing anything new. Probably because I’m stroll quite new to android but its cool I got the update :)

    This feature is very experimental.
    It appeared on my publishing site yesterday, but i could only see user-feedback of my own apps. Trying another app just gave server-error upon server-error and the browser was stuck in a loop.

    And today, the feature is gone. I just see an ever rotating progress-circle.

    But it is cool to have this feature.
