The one thing I love about my Android based smartphone, is the availability of applications for it. And finding and installing Android applications just got easier. Google has recently opened a web based version of the Android Market.
The Google Android Market website homepage
The website is clean and easy to navigate, with clearly marked tabs. I found amount of applications to be the most available for Android based hardware anywhere. I found quite a few that I had never seen on the Verizon version of the Android Market application.
A typical application category list
I browsed through a few categories and found an application to download. Remember that you have to be signed into your g-mail account associated with your phone to install any applications. I clicked on install and got the following prompt asking for the installation location. I selected my phone and clicked install.

Got a confirmation that the app would be downloaded to my Android.

I checked my phone and sure enough, on the status bar on top, was an icon indicating an app had be installed. A quick check confirmed the installation of the application.
This is, by far, the easiest away to find and install Android applications I have found to date. Hands down the best! If you have a Android powered device, I highly recommend you go over to Google Play and take a look around.
