Android Market Update Brings +1 Button, PIN Number for Purchases

By: t-marco August 23rd, 2011

Back in July, Google rolled out a massive Android Market update that overhauled the look and brought a number of new features including new ways to discover applications and the ability to rent movies and purchase books right from your phone.

Google has just started rolling out an update to the Android Market 3.1.3. Aside from a few slight aesthetic changes, the two main features include the ability to +1 apps and password protect (PIN lock) your Android purchases.

The addition of the +1 button allows you to, obviously, +1 apps in the Market while the PIN number feature allows you to secure you to set up a PIN number for purchases on the app store.

 

Android Police has an APK file for those who don’t like to wait. If you’re an impatient one, go ahead and install it yourself.
