Google Play Store updated to version 3.5.15, improves update menu and app review layout

The Android Market Google Play Store has received another incremental update, but instead of a name change this actually adds functionality.

There are two main improvements to the app: under the My Apps menu, you can see Installed and All Apps in a separate tab. This allows you to re-download any app you’ve previously tried and deleted, or paid for and uninstalled, bringing the functionality more in line with the desktop portal. There is still no option to manually re-install all, or a select portion, of your apps, which would go a long way to building in the same functionality for non-root users as Titanium Backup does for root users.

Another very helpful addition is the ability to sort reviews by Most Helpful or Newest, and separately, filter reviews based on the newest version of the app, or from people using the same device as you. This makes it far easier to sort the wheat from the chaff and get relevant information regarding how others on the same device are experiencing the app. It also gives you a little more incentive to flag spammy comments and reward quality ones, since those will now rise to the top to help other users.

Lastly, if you have multiple Google Accounts, the new Market makes it easy to switch between them with a drop-down menu.

The updated Google Play Store will be rolling out to everyone over the next few days, but if you’re in a hurry to get it, head over to Android Police for some sideloading mirrors.
