Android Market updated to 3.1.3, featuring +1 and pin number for purchases


Earlier today, Google released update 3.1.3 to the Android Market. The update is pretty minor, but does pack a couple of new features. First off, users can now use Google’s +1 button as a way of liking apps and games. More importantly, Google has introduced the ability to set a pin number for making purchases — like you’re used to doing when you awake your device.

Other minor updates include an updated Market icon, settings menu, and the size of the app is now in plain view (noted by Android Police). Check out another screenshot and how to get your hands on the update after the break. (via AndroidCentral)

The Market .apk is available here, and luckily it does not call for root access. Simply you’ll to enable Unknown Sources in Setting -> Applications to get things going.
