While it may not seem like such a big deal on the surface, the change that Google has made to the web version of its Play store indicates something about Google that is gaining momentum.
The store now has the more playful (pun intended) look that most of Google’s Android apps have taken with the use of colors and simply being more visually appealing, not to mention easier to navigate and actually find what you are looking for.
The new main page looks like this and was announced in a Google+ post
Interestingly enough, what we are seeing from Google in a design sense is a simpler more consistent look that is a little flat but it’s effective. Considering some of the screenshots that have been shared about the new look and feel of iOS 7 could it possibly appear like Apple is going to mimicking Google’s design elements? Now that would be a switch for sure and likely to knock the world off its axis.
