Android Market 的三个更新

早上起来收到 Android Market 项目组的公告邮件,对于明天的更新做了简单的说明。主要的更新点有三个,显然 Google 在 Android Market 的业务上面有新的动向了。


First, we have added support for a recent changes feature, which allows you to add notes about changes specific to the newest version of your application. You are able to submit these from the Developer Console, similar to descriptions. In the Market app, these notes will appear under the app description as “Recent changes.”

Second, there is now a ‘draft upload’ capability for application updates. This feature enables you to edit your app listing and upload a new version without affecting the version live in Market. Your app listing edits will not change your live listing until you select “Publish.”

Finally, we are adding support for larger promotional graphics to showcase your application. In addition to the currently required app screenshot, you will be required to upload one “feature” graphic. Supported promotional assets will now include:

  • A “feature” graphic, landscape aspect ratio, 1024 x 500 (required).
  • A high-res icon, 512 x 512 (required).. The Android icon design guidelines located at apply.
  • 2 screen shots, 320w x 480h, 480w x 854h, or 480w x 800h, increasing to 8 screen shots in the future (1 required).
  • A link for a promotional video hosted on YouTube (optional).





从上面的内容可以看出,Google 对于现在简陋的 Android Market 开发控制台有所改进,期望更多的开发者、更好的应用进入。同时,加强了促销等内容,或许是为了改变 Android Market 上的现有应用,免费为王的局面。以便更好的应用,更好的推广。

对于 512×512 的大资源图标,猜测可能是为了应对越来越多的 Android Pad,而提前准备的高质量视觉资源。
