Google today made a significant number of changes to the Android Market in hopes to make it easier to find applications. First, it has refreshed the way it treats the "top apps" recommendations and says they will be updated more frequently. It also offers editor's choice recommendations, gives its best developers more visibility, provides more relevant and useful related applications, and has a new section that displays trending applications. These changes are first available on the web version of the Android Market, and will be rolled out over the coming weeks to Android smartphones and tablets. Google made other changes to the Market, but for developers. One new feature increases the maximum size of applications, and lets developers selectively block certain devices from downloading apps.
