Re: K1 - Anyone get the new Google Play Store Update yet?

Anybody get the Play Store update pushed from Google? I've heard that the roll-out is slow. My phone received the update last Thursday, but my K1 is still running Market. I'd rather not manually install it if I can help it. Please let me know if anybody got the update pushed...

 

Thanks!

Re: K1 - Anyone get the new Google Play Store Update yet?

It has *not* been pushed to my K1 yet.  I have downloaded the app (from sites suggested on this forum), but have decided *not* to install it.  Once you get Google Play, you lose control over whether or not your apps are updated.  There is automatic update on everything you have.

 

As it stands, the Android Market on my K1 is still updating my apps (when I choose to update them) and I'm satisfied with that. 

 

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Version 3.2.1.  Kernel: 2.6.36.3.  Build: K1_A301_14_14_120109_US

Android Market Version 1.0.28

...

???  Not on any of my devices.  Auto update is still selectable globally and/or by application.

I have Google Play installed on my A1. If i click Menu/Settings, I can uncheck Auto-update apps, and a few other options.

I stand corrected ScooterCat & PiemJi. Thought I read that this was the case, but am happy you corrected me. Thanks!

 

I'm still going to hold off on manually installing the Google Play app though.

Why? Manually installing apps does nothing to jeopardize your tablet's stability.

 

It'll just replace the Market. You don't need to uninstall it yourself; in fact, you cant.

I'm holding off on updating aleafonthewind, because as some have reported ... "if it ain't broke, then don't fix it!"  LOL!  I'm new to tablets and afraid I'll screw something up that I can't fix.

Who cares? No use arguing with either of them.

Install the APK manually and be done with it, save yourself the trouble. There's no difference.

Mine updated itself the other day... Boy we are becoming a bunch of crybabies... Is everybody so computer illiterate that they can't fix things themselves? This is nothing compared to trying to run early DOS or Windows 3.0 Those were the days....
