FINALLY!  For users of Android 2.2, you’ll notice that when you misspell words in your Android Market search, you’re now given suggestions.

This is a long-overdue change, and one that I hope we’ll see rolled out to 2.1 and earlier users, soon.  At the moment, I can confirm that it is not available in 2.1, but we’ve contacted Google to see if we’ll get the goods soon.

For many of us, it’s a none-too-soon change.  Though the Market search is great, lacking the suggestions function has made it a real pain in the tail on some searches, where applications use naming that isn’t exactly what you’d expect.

Screenshots below, and a huge thanks to Androinica.
