Point Inside Shopping & Travel, have noted significant jumps in their downloads after receiving feature treatment, TechCrunch points out. An app still has to be good to get featured, Google says – it has editors searching through apps to find good ones to add to the featured categories – but this is at least an indicator for developers that there are ways to make money in the Android Market. The more the Market improves to help developers find people who want to download their apps, the more those developers will start throwing their efforts behind Google’s platform (instead of just Apple’s). And of course, that means more great apps for everyone.
