Android mascots aplenty on the Google I/O present.

Google is relegating poorly behaved Android apps to obscurity, making it more durable so that you can discover them while you’re looking the Google Play Store.

“We recently enhanced our search and discovery algorithms to reflect app quality,” Google Play Product Manager Andrew Ahn stated in a weblog publish Thursday. “This results in higher quality apps being surfaced in the Play Store more than similar apps of lower quality (e.g. apps that exhibit more frequent crashes).”

Ahn gives some tricks to programmers on making their apps snappy, simple on batteries and extra secure. If you are pissed off, although, take coronary heart that Google is watching who’s getting the one-star rankings.
