DROID X: Applications missing from the Android Market......

I am expirencing missing applications in the Market.

my DROID X is on the .604 SW release.

Example of 3 apps I use regularly are:

TV.com (CBS, CNET etc)

OneCAST ( new with videos)

Engadget

I am sure there are many more apps.

Anyone have a clue on why they are not showing up?

Is this going to be corrected on July 15th, or will there be another update?

Thanks

Bob

@bbleecker

Forgive me for asking, but where did you get this phone? If you were to have non-launch software sometimes apps won't show up unless they've been white listed on a Google approved version of the software. If your software isn't the official release then your software would need to be update to get those apps.

I was one of the lucky 150ish that were shipped from VZW.

I received it on the 8th and received one software update which brought me to .604.

Still concerned that these apps (TV.com, OneCAST, Engaget) are not available on the X.

I think Mark is right -- until the release the phone's software is likely not fully enabled on the Market. But I will ask around and see if I can get any additional details.

Engadget is on the Market. Just be sure to spell it right.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

Thanks for pointing this out -- we are looking into it. No explanation right now.

I will say that similar issues have happened during several Android launches and most were quickly fixed by someone throwing a switch behind the scenes.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

Will keep my fingers crossed that the apps will show up in the next few days.  I will post once I can install them.

Thanks

Re: DROID X: Applications missing from the Android Market......

The issue has to do with whether or not an app was submitted by the developer as "protected". Most of the bigger/smarter publishers submit their apps this way so they only appear on legit in-market devices. It's up to Google actually to recognize the device and system version in order for you to see these apps in Market. I work for one of these publishers and I can't even see my OWN apps that have been in market for awhile on my Droid X.  I suspect that a lot of us who have had pre-release version of the Droid X (ver .514) will see this clear up in the next day or two. If not, there will be pitchforks and torches towards GOOG/MOT/VZ. given all the current Android users upgrading to this device  ;-)

Looks like the switch was thrown and this is fixed. Please confirm and either let me know what's missing or mark "answered."

The only one I can't find is "OneCAST" but I can't find anything about it. Have you confirmed that it is in the market at all? I Googled it and all references to it lead to pages that say "no such app."

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!
