If you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably noticed that the new iPad was announced the other day and more importantly, that Google market is no more. More specifically, it has been supplanted by Google Play-the one stop shop for all the content Google offers be it apps, music, movies or books.
Essentially, Google Play is a rube goldberg machine jammed into an old suitcase. Wait nevermind, that’s just a metaphor for what it actually is–a unified, cross platform market for all of Google’s content.
Say goodbye to Andy the Android on the Android Market shopping bag icon, for now it has been replaced by the universally used play button icon on that sam shopping bag. R.I.P. Andy.
Luckily it shouldn’t be too difficult to locate the new market. Simply pop open the apps section in the top right of your tablet, and the look for the “Play Store” or just the Market icon in the top right. Now you can find the market is divided into 4 main categories with all the content you can enjoy: apps, books, movies, music.
