Google's Play Store app gets some Material Design lovin'

During Google I/O last month, we were introduced to Material Design. Material Design is the new design aesthetic for the upcoming Android L mobile operating system and makes greater use of bold colors, sliding “cards” and transitions, and larger “Roboto” typography.
To get an idea of what to expect with Material Design, take a look at this brief overview from Google:

Android Police is now reporting that the Play Store will get a similar Material Design makeover and that the refresh will likely launch with Android L – and it has the screenshots to prove it. The images below are obviously from a pre-release version of the Play Store and may not be indicative of exactly will be presented in its final form. However, the images do give us an idea of the minimalist direction that Google is heading towards with Material Design.

Current Play Store on the left, "Material Design" version on the right.
Head on over to Android Police to get the full scoop on the new iteration of the Play Store and a lot more pictures.

That's a lot of background.

It's simpler and cleaner, but that's a lot of background for a phone app. They've barely got half a paragraph of actual content in the new version of the Ready Player One screenshot.

That's an excellent book

Slightly off-topic but relating to the book for sale in the image above...Ready Player One is my favorite new book to come out in a long, long time. Anyone who has any connection at all to gaming/tech culture would find it entertaining, but if that connection extends into the 80's, then I would go so far as to call this a must-read. Enjoyed the hell out of that one, and hope he writes more in the same world.
