    You’re right about the quality of the Android Market UI design: it is very limited!

    But you should also evaluate it from an Android phone point-of-view. If you take a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ma9Xh67Eyo, you’ll see the phone user experience is much better. Although the search feature is not demoed in the video, it’s available in the Market application.

    This does not solve your wish to parse the application catalog before purchasing one Android device but you can expect a better experience once you’ll get one ;)

    A+, Dom

    Seeing as I do own an Android phone (HTC Dream). I did go online today to see the app store online. I did find it very limited. however the Search feature for the Phone is much better. And if you do use the search. It pulls up what you are looking for. Kinda like a google search but just for the apps. Found a lot of great ones on there too. And quite a few apps are just like the Iphone ones as well. (Light saber, WoW Armory, ect,) I list those as they are the ones my friends have and I found to just combat how great there phone is.
