Friday seems to be the Android web Market team's favorite day to release new features, no matter how incrementally small they may be. Today is no exception, as the web Market now includes a neat little breakdown chart of application ratings on each app page, together with a prominent average score. Have a look at the ratings for the Facebook app, which got an update today:


Every little bit counts, so thanks for this pre-weekend present, Google!

Cheers, Joseph!

    Doesn't make any sense. here for example https://market.android.com/details?id=com.hg.vikingfree

    1,055 total votes, yet 2426 voted 5 stars, 1414 voted 4 stars, and so on...

    can someone explain?

      The market seems to be totally fubar, it's been like that for a few weeks now.

      The developer console isn't updating anything either. Very annoying if you'd like to know how well your apps are doing without falling back to tools like Flurry.


      Maybe the number under the stars is the # of comments??? It should be # of votes though.

      my guess is that something somewhere is maniacally averaging not just the rating scores, but also the # of ratings. now THERE's a useful statistic.... lol

      It's seems it's OK now.

      4,743 total votes, 5 star 2465, 4 star 1433 etc.
