Play Store Update to v3.5.16 Available to Download

Google has begun rolling out an update for the Play Store, which brings the marketplace up to version 3.5.16.

This upgrade is available only for some users at the moment (e.g. developers probably testing the build) but those who want it eagerly can download the file right now.

Version 3.5.16 of Google's Play Store fixes issues for those that had troubles seeing purchased applications or, were experiencing force closes. Note that there is no official changelog.

No visual improvements or enhancements of key features were reported, unlike the last update (3.5.15), when the Android Marketplace was changed to today's Google Play and new features like an "Installed" and "All tabs" have been introduced. Since then, reviews show the device used by the reviewer of any particular app and can be sorted to find the most helpful or the newest first.

The update can be downloaded by clicking here (opens in new tab), here (opens in new tab)or here (opens in new tab), where an .apk file has been uploaded. Simply transfer this on the phone and install it as any other application. If, for some reason, the browser transfers the file with any other extension, as .rar or .bin, change it manually to .apk.

The Google Play Store is home to over 200 million users and thousands of applications, but developers have complained that revenue generated from "premium" apps is still small.
