Welcome +Tina Patel
! I look forward to hearing lots about the direction Play is going to take in the near future.
I wanted to respond to +Andrew Banchich
and his comments about the market design - though he can legitimately dislike the visual style, he doesn't make much for a legitimate argument against it. Let me make clear my stance - Google is not Apple Inc, nor are they affiliated with Apple or it's well known "App Store". Clearly that's an obvious fact, but I think you're forgetting to associate that when making comparisons.
The visual design is relatively seamless with Google's company colors, the Play Logo and branding, and it's app UI's. It's crafted, not compiled or just convenient. Further, if +Luis Flores
suggesting Theme options is "Too Complicated", what could be more simple than the current arrangement of category differentiation using the primary colors?
Your suggestions seem to scream "me, me, me". Your associations with the color palette, your impressions of the splashed design, and your comparative stance with the Apple App store.
As many have noted in this post commentary, Google needs to start working on getting Play pushed out to an entire planet of users while simultaneously fixing and fine-tuning new and existing features - for over 500 variations of hardware running Android.
They have their hands full with issues that actually affect and include everyone. They' are not going to overhaul Play anytime soon just for you.
I mean, cripes, in the time it took to post this comment right now you could've downloaded Chrome or Firefox if you haven't already, grabbed Stylish or some equivalent extension, and written the custom style you need anyways.
As for +Tina Patel
and her incredibly long to-do list, if I could add anything to it, it would be to remove devices permanently from the "My Devices" tab in "My Market". It's a nit-pick, but my drop-down list is getting lengthy. No rush. :)
