Windows "Google announced an update to its Google Play mobile app on Android - its online store for apps, music, books, magazines, movies and TV shows - today, one that is aimed at cleaning up the UI and optimizing it for different device types. It's a model of clarity and discoverability, not to mention scalability, features that are sorely lacking in Microsoft's Windows Store." As a Surface RT owner, I couldn't agree more with Paul Thurrott.

Does it allow sorting/filtering out apps by permissions or at least lists permissions in search results?


Right, especially the in-app purchase permission, which they used to list, but are now hiding from users. And they also need a way to filter out apps that are infected with adware.

Google, an advertising company, filter out adware? I think you forgot a sarcasm tag somewhere. ;)

If it's the adware of competitors, why not?
