What are the best apps you have come across that just arent on the android market. I Music is great and clearly a well known, safe app. So i'm looking for things along the same lines. Safe, trusted apps that just arent in plain sight on the market. Of course it doesnt have to be music or media related.
I have a new Droid Eris and have been having a really hard time finding apps that I read about in different places. I often find myself reviewing a very popular, top-rated app, then not being able to find it no matter how I search in the Market. These aren't usually obscure, ancient, one-off apps. I usually am hearing about them in 'top Android apps' articles, etc.
I usually search by the exact name, then alternate spellings. And I recently got the Barcode Scanner and am scanning the QR codes over at AndroLib.com to see if it's any easier. But I haven't gotten ANY of those to come up.
- What gives with the Android Market? Could I have something setup improperly?
I live in Los Angeles, so I doubt it's a location issue.
Some sample apps I couldn't find just tonight: - Camera ZOOM FX - Voice Trans - Voice Text
I have publish a app with this AndroidManifest.xml code...
and with publish option Copy Protection = ON(Helps prevent copying of this application from the device. Increases the amount of memory on the phone required to install the application.), Locations = all Locations but i found that some device can't find it in market , it including Acer liquid, sony ericsson x10 mini pro, and even a Sansung Galaxy S Any suggestion?
I got my Evo for RS as soon as it opened. Once it was activated, I started downloading my favorite apps that I had on my Moment w/ 2.1. I have done every type of search I can think of in the Market, but I still can't find my two favorite apps: Launcher Pro and Quick Settings. I even went on AndroLib.com and found both apps. I then scanned the QR codes and it could not be located in the Market. I also clicked on the market link, using the browser on my Evo, from the review of Launcher Pro on AC and couldn't find it.Any one else having this problem? As a last resort I can make a backup of both apps from my Moment and then install it from the sd card to my Evo, but I would rather dl from the market.
I'm new to this, but this site has helped me a lot. I recently viewed my friends droid and saw that he had a different, quicker home. So I searched for the exact app he has called home ++ and my droid cannot find it. I'm running on 2.2
Had a quick question - Did the update yesterday morning with no issues other than I can not find some of the apps I used prior to the upgrade. I can find them in the market, but when I try to use my phone to download, it can not find them. Note: I used Astro to back up most of my apps on the phone, these couldn't be backed up since they were marked private. And they didn't display in my downloads either after the upgrade. Digital Clock Widget: Silent Time: If I use my friends phone (same version prior to my upgrade), no problem finding these apps. Suggestions? I could always downgrade back to the previous version, but I was having some freezing issues that I hope this upgrade fixed...
I just got a Captivate and upgraded to the leaked 2.2 update.Since I updated, gameloft apps(specifically Asphalt 5 HD) will no longer show up in the market.I have tried going to gameloft directly and even directly to the download page but it states that there is no such app.Again, I could find all gameloft apps before my update.I've also had other apps show up and when I click, the download page can't be found.is this because the apps are not compatible with 2.2?
Woke up with update message, ran update. Phone completely wiped out of ALL data. Was very upset Does anyone know how to find a list of all previously loaded market place apps? This is a total pain in the butt.
Ever since I've had my HTC Hero, the internet connection has been really flaky. That is, about half the time it works ok, but with a slow start, and the other half it doesn't work at all, and comes up with either a "cannot find page" in the browser, or "a network error has occurred" in Market or other apps.
I bought into the Hero thing because I wanted a mobile internet device and my iPhone wasn't cutting it with the lack of Flash. But at least my iPhone always worked!
The problem I'm having is this:
No matter whether I'm on wifi or not, browsing for a webpage in any of the available browsers (standard, steel, dolphin), has a delay of about 5 seconds, and then either starts loading the page, or comes up with some kind of "page not found" error. This happens with all websites, including the home page of google, which isn't exactly big or unreliable, except on my Hero.
Also, any app that uses an internet connection, such as Market, more often than not comes up with "a network error has occurred". Clicking "retry" rarely works.
Now if it was just through wifi, I would think it might be the setup of the routers that I've tried it on, allthough I've tried it on 3 completely different types of router, all with same symptoms.
I've also done much testing with wifi switched off, and still the same issues.
I could understand it if it just didn't work ever under either wifi or other, but sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.
I have done my wifi tests while sitting right next to the routers, with maximum signal reception being indicated.
Ok, so it tells me that "a network error has occurred". Is there some way of finding out exactly what the error was? Was it a timeout, or a DNS error, or what?
Sometimes, I see an application on androlib.com, or androidzoom.com that I want to install on my phone. However, I can not find it on Market, I even tried with QR Code, but still come out with a result "not found". why? is it because that app doesn't support my phone? Example, right now, I can not find LiquiDroid on my HTC Wildfire
I've read about the WHERE app (finds restaurants, movies, bars, etc). I have the Places Directory (by Google) but I tried it out and it didn't even find the 2 closest movie theatres near me. Why can't I find the Where app in the market?
I have an app that was installed via Android Market. And so, the Android Market knows when new versions are out and notifies me of an update. Titanium Backup calls this the 'Market Link', not sure what else it could be called.
how would I go about 'disconnecting' the app from the Market? Deleting the market link as if it were side-loaded?
Yes, I know this means no more updates for the app etc. Which is actually what I'm after.
I'm using a SGS - DocRom V9.6 with Speedmod Kernel k13a
I was looking for speed dial apps and found thought I'd try out MeContacts. The link to the app from appbrain app (and other websites) transfers me to the market and then just gives me an error: "The requested item could not be found." Is it down or is it just my phone? I'm running a rooted Moto Droid with BB 0.4 as my ROM.
I have publish a app with this AndroidManifest.xml:
and with publish option Copy Protection = ON(Helps prevent copying of this application from the device. Increases the amount of memory on the phone required to install the application.), Locations = all Locations but i found that some device can't find it in market , it including Acer liquid, sony ericsson x10 mini pro, and even a Sansung Galaxy S.
I've got several messages from my users that they cannot download my app. My app should be available in any market from sdk 1.5 and up, but it's not. Why only part of users with sdk 1.6 can find my app? Should I add android:targetSdkVersion?
