If you are one of those heavy-downloading types, you will be happy to learn this evening that Google Play was updated with a new “Recommended for You” section. It is straightforward and works close to how Genius does on iOS, providing recommendations on apps that Google Play thinks you should download. The section can be accessed via Google Play’s different categories; offering up suggestions from what is popular with similar users, +1’d by your Google+ friends, and apps that are popular in your area. Find something on the list you don’t like? You can easily get rid of it from the recommendation list with the hide button. Find something you do like? Well…you know the rest. [Android Central, Image via Droid Life]
