Just this past weekend I went to the Google Play Store to install a better clock and alarm application (don’t ask) and was overwhelmed by the options.
As a consumer, the Play Store is daunting.
In a blog posted final week, the company reported a new search algorithm for applications obtainable on the Google Play Store.
With almost three million applications obtainable on the Play Store, Google needed some way to help consumers find the better performing ones as well as benefit its developers that make a higher quality product.
“The change has had a positive effects on engagement – we’ve seen that people go on to use higher quality applications further and uninstall them less,” Google said in its blog post.

Android Developers Blog: the way we’re helping people find quality applications and games on Google Play
In fact, in an internal analysis of application reviews on Google Play, we noticed that half of 1-star reviews mentioned application stability.
Developers who focus on application quality can see improvements in their rating, and ultimately their retention and monetization.
As fraction of our continued effort to deliver the better possible Google Play experience, we recently enhanced our search and discovery algorithms to reflect application quality.
This results in higher quality applications being surfaced in the Play Store further than similar applications of lower quality (eg: applications that exhibit further frequent crashes).
By focusing on the quality and performance of your app, you’ll find further success on Google Play.
