    The 15 minute rule probably won't be in place for little while. And as others have said before me, I think if anything, this 15 minute rule will turn more to piracy to test stuff out before purchasing stuff. Sorry, in this type of economy in the US, no one is just going to shell out dough for something without testing it extensively to ensure it is the best for them.

    and it looks increasingly like the appstore, unfortunately.

    Lesson to self: Careful what you ask for. This new one sucks- yeah the header is way too huge, and it seems like the same old Market with a mask on.

    I've heard the 15 minute rule was to stop people from buying games, beating them in 24 hours and then getting refunds for them. That I can understand, but I think the window should've been shortened to like 3-4 hours. I think in 3-4 hours you're not going to beat most games and you still have time to test the app to see if it works or not. 15 mins is just not long at all unless the app is a remarkably buggy POS.

    Or have a different time limit for games than for apps.

    i think the developer should be able to decide how long, with a 15 minute minimum enforced. "try it free for 3 days" type stuff could be attractive to some users and the developers could have all the control within reason.

    Should be at least a 1 hour minimum, this is just going to promote more piracy. If a game is not fun after an hour then people should prob get their money back anyways lol.

    The new Market looks nice but not sure it improves the experience. IMO. The scrolling apps at the top is a good idea, but I always go to apps I don't want to click.

    15 minutes for a refund is crazy; little to no chance to check out an app for bugs or other issues (i.e. you just honestly don't like it). But, if it protects developers I'm fine with it. The devs make Android what it is today.

    I'll be where I'm at!
    I agree with this, I just hope it does not promote piracy!

    My wife's Incredible upgraded to the new market yesterday. I downloaded Beautiful Widgets for her, I closed market, then came back and it was the new format. I was impressed at how quickly it updated.

    Hmm... still not seeing a market update on mine yet. I keep going into it, but no change. Wonder if I have to get some small app to trigger the update?

    I like that idea a lot. Devs who offer a longer refund policy might get more business and it would leave it completely in the hands of the devs.

    Personally, I've only purchased one app that I got a refund on and it was actually within the 15 min time period. I purchased a music player that shall remain nameless on recommendations here. It FC'd within seconds of getting it all set up. I played another song or two and it FC'd again. Rebooted the phone, got a few more FC's afterwards and got a refund for the app.

    The 15 minute window is BS. I was actually fairly liberal in buying apps because I knew I had enough time to test it out. 15 minutes isn't enough. Nice job Google. Less time == Less purchases. $1 is now my spend ceiling unless I am darn sure it's going to do what I need.

    Off to dispute the charge if the dev won't refund on their own. Neat.

    Just got mine updated this morning.

    After trying to update an app, Market kept shutting down with a "problem". Once I tried later, the NEW market was loaded. Strange way of updating Market.

    For those who have not recieved the new market, try this. Clear the Market cache and data, then go back into the Market. This is how I got it to show up on my Incredible, my girlfriend's Droid, and a friend's Evo.

    count yourself lucky!

    New Market is the old market but a bit slower.
