Android Market Web Store finally released, better pricing controls and in-app purchases coming to Market
It's very similar to AppBrain, but you can purchase apps directly from the Web -- and push apps directly to your phone.
Additional features of the Web Store:
- Lots of developer control to make app pages look attractive
- The page is laid out intelligently, with links to other apps by the developer, screenshots of the app -- in essence, it's just like any other App Store
- Sharing tools are built-in -- easy to send apps to friends, via Twitter, email
- If you open a Web Store link on your phone, it opens the Market -- genius!
- You can sort apps in a variety of ways -- compatibility (2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc.), popularity, and so on
- You can see all of your installed/purchased apps -- just like AppBrain
There are some screenshots of in-app purchases, and Tap Tap Revenge for Android, after the break.
