Now, according to 9to5google, the blog hdblog among other smaller publications, the most popular of applications for any Android device may change significantly to the Android Apps evaluation and presentation model and it will be the average user who will benefit most from the news!
Changes will be clearly visible within the Google Play store.
In order to better highlight the best Android Apps within each category, the Google Play Store platform will feature the highest rated content so that the end user knows they are in the presence of one of the best Apps within each genre / category. .
Here is an example of Android Apps with the new identifier of the category to which they belong and the place they occupy within the ranking of the respective category:
This new rating system comes after a recent change in the design and appearance of content organization according to the various types of content and physical media they are intended for.
Each of the Android Apps will have their place in the ranking of their category, for example # 1 in Games, # 4 in productivity and so on. If you click on this new identifier you will be taken to the category table page with the best and worst Android Apps in each area.
The Android Apps categories will be as follows:
- Top Free
- Top Most Profitable
- Top Popular
- Top Paid
Each Leaderboard will display the top 10 Apps in each category and this will be particularly useful for the average user as they can easily understand which apps are best for their intended purpose.
