Has any1 figured out how to add apps to the apps tab? When installing I have to create a shortcut which places it on the desktop of my Droid.
You are brilliant!!! I still can't get them to show up under the middle tab, but I created a folder and followed your directions and the ones that were not showing up were there. I just added them to that folder. So still not the same as before, but at least they are just in one folder on my desktop. Thanks for your help!!!!
i'm glad that is working for you as i had to do the same...but as i said above my apps just magically came back to the proper place an hour ago....i did the 2.2 update 2 days ago...keep checking your apps in the middle tab and see if they come back...if so just delete the folder you created.
Hi. I also sent a note to Verizon before I went on this forum and this is the reply I received. It doesn't really explain why your apps appeared again unless it takes a while to verify if an app was installed and compatible....anyway here is the reply:
The reason you aren't able to view previously installed 3rd Party applications obtained through the Android Marketplace on your Motorola DROID A855 Smartphone, after the Froyo [OS version 2.2] update, is because said applications are not formatted for the current device OS.
To practically resolve this issue, you must uninstall the applications, and via the Android Marketplace, download them again. Keep in mind that in some instances, you'd not be able to even locate the applications any longer, simply because the 2.2 OS will display compatible applications, to successfully Download & Install.
Just thought I would share...
OK..freeky....been two days..I just uninstalled and reinstalled an app...and everything I had showed up..sorry to keep dragging this post out...but everything is back and who knows why....take care and thanks for helping me!!
