During its presentation of Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Google announced some forthcoming changes that it is making to the Android Market in order to improve the experience for end users as well as developers. The first big change is the launch of the Android Market web store. The web store component will allow users to browse through the store directly from their desktop. Users can then push apps from the browser to their handset. It offers categories such as featured applications, categories, and highly-rated applications. Applications purchased from the Android Market will automatically be installed on users' handsets. Users can also share applications via social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Users can also use the web store to manage their Android Market account online. Android also announced that local market currency support is coming to the market. Developers will be able to price their apps for various currencies regardless of the exchange rate. Google also announced support for in-app purchases in the Android Market. This will allow developers to sell virtual good within their applications, such as new levels or unlocked features.
