Google has revamped the Android Market web site. It’s no easier get a quick look at some of the top free, top paid, and featured applications, just like you would if you were using the Android Market on a mobile phone.
But there’s one major feature that’s missing from the web site: Search.
You’d think a company that made its name in the search engine space would put a little time into adding a search box to the Android Market web site. After all, there are more than 50,000 apps available for Android phones at this point. But you can only see a few dozen on Google’s official web portal for the Android Market.
Of course you can search the Android Market on a mobile device if you have an Android powered phone. And arguably that’s a lot more important than being able to search for apps on the web. But Google wants people to think about purchasing Android smartphones, the company’s going to have to make it easier to find out what kind of apps you can run without first plunking down the cash for a phone.
