    When doing a search for a app in the Market..why can't it bring up apps that match what you type? I have to type the whole app name and hit enter to actually bring the app up..

    Google is not very good at search algorithms.

    Guess they need to work on that then huh? I'm sure if Apple can do it Google can.

    Why can't they just organize the app market and assign proper keywords or tags? Not to mention clearer ratings and lucid comments. I'm so over the Apple mode of app store for ******s.

    this has been one of my biggest pet peaves. It's weird to me that Google is droping the ball on the search engine for the market. If they did like ya'll suggested and create a "keywords cloud bubble" for the main keywords then life would be so much more simple.

    Market for me is fast on 3G (Pretty damn fast) and WiFi (way faster than 3G)..and I can search without full ap names...though I have ran into that a few times.
