"Automagically" is the worst word ever.

Moments earlier at the Google Honeycomb event, a weird white-haired dude with a sport jacket and T-Shirt unveiled the Android Market Web Store. It allows you to browse the whole Android market through your PC browser.

You can purchase apps from the web store, and automatically push them through to your Android device without ever touching it. There's also a pane that shows all apps purchased and allows you to push them through on any of your Android devices. Getting a new phone or tablet up-to-speed will be easier than ever.

Free apps can be downloaded over-air via a one-click process. The demo guy described it as working "automagically", which might be the worst word ever invented. But don't let that keep you away from the Android Web Store. It is live today at

Oh- and Google will soon support in-app purchases to all developers who agree to the Android in-app purchase SDK. Users will be able to set up credit / debit cards on their Google account, for easy purchase without the hassle of entering your credit card data.
