Is Your Android Market App Loading Slowly, Especially On Wi-Fi? Give This Fix A Try

20110224233315!Android_MarketThe intrepid folks over at XDA are always tinkering away to try and make using your Android device a better experience. And a few weeks ago, one of them (namely, temasek) found that the Android Market has some issues trying to resolve DNS servers when your device is connected over Wi-Fi. This can cause the Market to load slowly, and it's definitely something I've experienced on my own phone.
The solution? A popular app called Set DNS (note: root is required), which forces your phone or tablet to use a particular name server when connecting to the web, may speed up load times over Wi-Fi. Upon using it myself, after a reboot, I noticed the Market did seem to load substantially faster than I've grown accustomed to. Here's the link to the free version:
Download Set DNS from Google Play

This version does expire, so if you want to keep using it, you'll have to cough up a quid (1GBP or about ~$1.70US).
Set DNS Pro
Download Set DNS Pro from Google Play

You can use any of the DNS services the app offers, though OpenDNS has always been my preferred DNS service. Has this sped up your Market load times on Wi-Fi? Let us know in the comments.
