AppBrain v5: Sync Widget, Integrated Fast Web Installer, UI Improvements
Nov 20, 2010 1:00 PM –
AppBrain has now upgraded their awesome app up to Version 5 with some pretty neat features. One feature in particular is due to a change on Google’s part. Let’s discuss:
- Every app now has a detail page. Appbrain now shows up quicker on launch than previous versions. You can now share your app through any app on your phone with sharing capability (Gmail, Messages, Twitter, Facebook, etc…). When viewing an app’s detail page, you can press the “Related” tab to see similar apps.
Integrated Fast Web Installer:
- It’s no longer necessary to have the separate app.
- The latest update of the Android Market has disabled the functionality of Fast Web Installer. Pressing the “Enable Fast Web Install” will quickly let you know if you can still use this option. Not all devices have received this update yet, however, to compensate for those who used it can now utilize the 1X1 widget for syncing purposes directly from your home screen or “desktop” of your phone.
The update is available on the Android Market. Check out our review of AppBrain when it launched in May. Fair warning, due to the new features the review is due for an app review update
