Get Yourself a New Tab....in the Market That Is

Our friends over at Android Central are reporting that the Android Market has add some new functionality added in quietly to handsets running Foryo recently. (Image credit for the two screens goes to them as well).  If you look closely at the images to left, you will see two screen shots showing a new tab that allows you to find similar or related apps.  We assume both tabs do the same thing, allow users to find apps that are the same type as the one they are browsing.

I was unable to see this new tab on my Vibrant (I have a Froyo ROM on said device), but other people are reporting to have seen the addition.  If you have a Froyo device, let us know if you have seen the new tab appear. It’s exciting to see some movement in the Market, with a possible update release coming soon!

    I have only seen the “Similar” tab so far…no “Related” tab.

  • benjymous

    Not Froyo only, it seems – it just appeared on the Market of my X10 mini running 2.1

    Nice to get something before other people for a change, after the wait for 2.1 :-D

  • flo

    got it on my tab and my hd2 (running froyo) also :)

  • Victor

    After I updated the version of my YouTube, I get the “Related” tab.

    Nexus one at Ottawa.

  • Jasper

    I’ve got the Related tab up here in the Great White North, running on an Acer Liquid E with the official acer rom.

  • jessexcruz

    It worked on my Cliq (Vanilla 2.1 ROM). Just Clear Cache, Force stop and reboot.

  • JahNile

    All you have to do is go to Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage applications>Market , (you might have to hit the “all” tab first) and then clear data on the Android Market app. Re-launch it, and you should have the “Related” or “Similar” tab.

    • wyatt

      It appeared on my stock Devour….Crazy since I’m at 1.6, and never will move up.

  • Poisonlyric

    I have it using Droid X running 2.2, but the only problem is
    is when I have ever clicked on tbe “similar” tab IT HAS ALWAYS
    FORCED CLOSED THE.MARKET WITH THE STANDARD “this application
    Has quit working” etc. Have tried it at least 20 times all with different apps.
    FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!

  • Ben

    Got it on my HTC Legend running stock 2.1 (Eclair)

  • Keith

    Noticed it yesterday on my Moto Droid and the nice thing is now the stuck install has finally cleared and the app it was stuck on has updated. When I tried to kill it in the previous version of the market, the market would force close. Even a reboot didn’t fix the issue. Glad to see some changes/fixes in the Market.
