Once again form over function, and screwing developers over who are not lucky to make it to the top 6-7 apps in their category.
Before users could discover your app just by scrolling if you were in the top 25, now an extra click is needed for more than the top few. Very disheartening.
Also, great to see the # of stars each app gets, but it's pretty much useless info as all top apps shown with the same 5 stars, weather they have a 4.3 or a 4.9 rating -- which is a huge difference. The # of Ratings are no longer shown for some mysterious reason, which is a much better indicator how good an app is than the almost useless star rating. So an app with one 5-star rating looks the same as an app with 3000.
Terrible redesign for people who actually try to earn a living from Google Play. I realize Google doesn't give a flying f*ck if they earn their 30% from which app, but for smaller players this is terrible.
My earnings have already dropped by 40% this month since Google changed up the "Also viewed" section. At least when a customer clicked on one of the top apps, they would see other good apps -- now it's mostly pointing to unrelated free apps as opposed to paid apps. I hate to bitch, but unless you are one of the chosen few to appear on the top, you might as well quit. It's not related to ratings or download count, my app has a higher rating than every single app above it.+Vic Gundotra
