    Angry Apps remove themselves

    I have BB 0.2.1 and I have downloaded various apps like weather channel and Weather & toggle for the cool active weather. They are their when I first download them and whenever I reboot them they are off the screen and if I long press to add the widget, neither are an option to add.

    Please help

    Thanks

    I've had this happen as well. On reboots certain widgets and applications vanish. They are still installed on the phone but not accessible. If you go to re-install you can actually enter the app from the market. Very weird.

    seriously folks, restart your launcher and move the app from the sd card to the phone....

    it seems like all the "issues" with these froyo roms are issues with people not reading.

    Apps auto download to your sdcard with bugless beast. So you may think they are on your phone but they are on your card. unless you physically moved them to your phone. I use launcher pro and after I reboot I go into launcher settings and clickrestart launcher. And all my apps are back. It's also been mentioned numerous times move you widget apps to the phone. If you don't want you apps to save to card automatically there are ways to disable that in other threads under the bugless. section.

    4sure, if more people read the thread they would figure out these common issues themselves!

    Hmm... i have read this thread. I read Pete's release notes... I use launcher Pro, and beautiful widgets... everytime I reboot, I get prompted as to what launcher i want to use, home or launcher pro. i can livve with that.... what i cant live with is that every single widget, be it from the beautiful series, or not, is NOT showing. I get "problem Loadint Widget" yes i moved them all the the phone. yes I disabled installing to SD card with terminal, "pm setInstallLocation 0" and i tried it with a 1 as well, so it wasnt going Auto. (wasnt sure how the thing automatically regulates what goes where. I uninstalled all my widgets, went to market and redownloaded them ensuring they are installed on phone NOT SD card... and then upon reboot, same thing... problem loading widget....

    what else can i do? what have I NOT done? love the rom, but this reboot issue s killing me... I keep having to go back to BB1.1....

    I think it is interesting that people are offering a work around for this well known issue and then act like they just need to read the thread and all is well.

    The suggestion to move the apps from the SD card to the phone and to restart the launcher does correct this problem for most people. However, it is only a work around and not a fix. Clearly the OS is not functioning the way it was intended.

    So if you went out and bought a HCSD card because you're the type that likes having a lot of apps and you wanted to conserve space on your phone and to utilize the OS the way it was intended to be use, well to bad.

    You will need to saturate your internal memory with these apps and live with the fact that you bought something that doesn't work the way it is supposed to.
