    Apps question

    Ive got another question
    Thanks in advance.

    When I first got the droid I went right to Market and downloaded a few apps.Some useful some fun. Then later that day I decided toclear them out and restart anew so that I could pick and chose the few that I would eventually use. I used a delete fuction on the phone rather than the uninstall in market. It now says that I have these apps installed in market but cant be opened. But really theyre nowhere to be found. The fun apps that are gone are no loss but I can no longer get Pandora and Weather.com since it says they are installed but I cant open them. Is there a way to undelete or reinstall these apps?

    Again thanks for any help.

    See thats what I did originally.
    If I do the uninstall in Market i can reinstall
    Now I want back a couple I uninstalled (eg Pandora) but the Market still sees it as installed so I cant open it/install it again.

    It kind of resolved itself
    The Pandora program offered an update available which I used and the droid found Pandora. Implies that the program is still on phone. Weather.com still unavailable. So overall achieving success in spite of /myself

    Maybe it was still on your sdcard somewhere? Did you ever check to see if it was with a program like Astro?
