Wink Updated Android Market For Honeycomb & Phones - Ice Cream Sandwich Market (4.0)

http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/09...ew-publishing/

Yep, a long-awaited update to the tablet Market is definitely in full effect, and it looks nearly identical to the phone Market. This is no coincidence, either-- remember the minor update that El Goog pushed to phones last week? It turns out that is the same exact version that's being pushed to the XOOM. Yeah, that means you can simply download the 3.1.5 apk and install it on your tablet to get the new Market. That's all kinds of win.

I saw that this was included in the Xoom update that was pushed out today, and wondered when we might see it on the TF. Is there any downside to installing the market via sideload? Like, problems with future updates, that sort of thing?

Thanks for the link, by the way.

I'm sure this is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) market. You can side load this and also can uninstall. (You can see 2 market icons. One is original old one and other is new one. New one you can uninstall.) Try it......

Some games that use in-app billing doesnt work well with this new market and the only way to solve this is to either wait for the game developers to fix their game or to uninstall the update to play the game. Not sure what google changed that caused 2-3 of my games force closing during startup due to this new update.

There are supposedly some issues with it regarding multiple market apps installed locally, and some stability issues.

I'm going to wait until it's official
