    I'm about to release an app in about a month so I wanted to test out the market and I uploaded a live wallpaper. For some reason I cant find it when I search, it isn't on Androlib.com or androidzoom.com . 47 people have downloaded it, i'm not sure how but this is discouraging ... :mad:

    It shows up for me.
    I am not sure why it would not show up for you.
    Are you using a ROM or not on 2.1 yet??

    Yes - stock 2.1 (non-rooted)...have you noticed other things that you cannot locate in the market - for example: google earth, the LWP shake them all, etc....the reason I ask, is after I received the OTA update I was missing some things in the market - I did a factory reset and well, there they were. It was all things that were associated with the "live" function of the update. (Hope that makes sense)...

    I am assuming you have already powered off, battery pull, etc...prior to a factory reset...

    Hmm you guys are correct.

    I DL'd your LWP and then I sync'd with appbrain and it doesn't show up in my list of DL'd apps on appbrain (not that that matters but is an FYI) on my laptop but it shows up in my appbrain list on my Droid...

    I need to find a solution though. I don't want to release an app I've spent hours on only to have 5% of the android community be able to access it... that would be a waste of time

    People are downloading it and the only person I can confirm can see it is someone that did a factory reset after getting 2.1.

    This also seems to be a problem for other groups releasing apps, so maybe a problem on Google's end.:mad:

    Is anyone else able to see the app?

    I'm very concerned with releasing our app now. So far 500 people have downloaded the live wallpaper.

    Does Google have a way to link apps? I could not find a way to do this.

    Does anyone know anything else I could do to make it visible to more people or everyone?

    :mad:
