Google has revamped its Android Market app for smartphones with a brand new look as well as some more products for purchase.

The Android Developers Blog points out that this new interface could work better for both customers and developers. The new UI is intended to be more engaging as it showcases top apps and games while providing a quicker path to purchasing products. For developers, this ideally means that there are more opportunities for apps to get picked up and downloaded.

Some of the new features include more lists (i.e. Top Paid, Top Free, Top Grossing, etc.) that are country-specific, and individual app product pages have been rearranged to streamline the buying process.
