Android Market Gets New Installation Graph

Advertisement

Have you ever considered buying an app, but hesitated because you didn’t know how popular it was? It looks like Google is attempting to answer that question with their latest addition to the Android Market: Installation Histories.

For apps that had been installed over 1,000 times you can now see the last 30-day’s of installations on the web-version of the Android Market. While this may not be particularly practical, it is something that could prompt an impulse-buy. Conversely, a chart that shows an app is trending might hurt sales.

What do you think? Will you more or less likely to install an app based on this new information?
