Google are listening: Android Market website now browsable

One of the first things that annoyed me on my switch from Nokia to Android was the inability to browse the Market through the official Android Market website. Well it seems that Google have heard my cries (OK and everyone else’s) and have started adding this functionality to the site.

Android Market Website

Android Market Website - finally browsable

OK so you can’t search apps yet but I’m sure this won’t be too far off.

Here is the post on the Google blog about it all:

Recently we became aware that some Android applications were not visible on the Android Marketplace. While we were internally troubleshooting and qualifying the fix and communicating with our hardware partners,developers were trying hard to get our help through various technical support sites. Regrettably, we feel short of our own standard for customer support by not communicating the issue to our developers and how we were working to resolve it.

We’re pleased to say that the issue looks to be resolved with a patch, and to our best knowledge, all apps that were previously impacted are up and visible again. Again, apologies for the delay and inconvenience this created.

Looks like they’re listening!
