    Are some apps blocked by Verizon? I have searched for DroidESPN and Camera Zoom FX and neither will show up when I search for them. I even scan the QR code and and the search comes up blank.

    Anyone else experience anything like this?

    Me too!

    I've only noticed one. I got the TerraTime trial for free. I like it so much, I want to go ahead and purchase it, but the Market can't locate it. So...they have the free trial, but no way to buy the full version.

    Perhaps it is a 1.5 issue?

    Here this might help ya out...

    License for using TerraTime beyond the 7 day free trial period. TerraTime is a Round 2 finalist in ADC2 and offers an interactive 3D globe, daylight clock w/widget, and realtime world map live wallpaper.

    Please install - and do NOT uninstall - TerraTime Trial (see my other apps) before purchasing this license.


    I found this in the market...Not sure where you guys are looking, dang...

    If you have trouble finding something in the market you can also try looking on androlib.com and using the barcode scanner. This should take you directly to the app in the market on your phone.

    No, really! My phone can't find it!

    I tried purchasing it directly from the link in the app - not found. I tried searching in the marketplace, nothing. Can't be found. I promise.

    I sent an email to the contact on the app's website.

    Sorry to dredge this thread up, but something must be going on. There are LOTS of apps I can't seem to find in the Market with a search-- Droidlight, ActionComplete, Compare Everywhere, several others I've looked-up. I'm a very newbie, so what am I missing here?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    bheller - CatsTide may be right. I can find them in the market (in fact there are two DroidLight apps -one is labeled ++). Maybe it's based on availability by phone type?

    Thanks...I thought about that-- Wasn't sure but is plausable. But aside from hardware differences, I thought apps are 'universal' with the Droid. Apparently not?

    I have access to a Droid and Eris (both Verizon). The Droid's Marketplace does have some apps that do not show on the Eris. One example is Shapewriter. For the Droid it's 3.0, but 3.0 can't be found for the Eris.

    I've thought about that myself. For example, in Androlib.com I was looking for a game like Zuma. I found Bonsai Blast. But it didn't show up when I looked on the Market, even using the QR code. I had heard that it wasn't compatible with the Droid, so that's why I didn't see it in the Market. I was guessing that when you applied to put an app in the Market, you had a check list for compatible phones. If the phone you owned wasn't checked, it wouldn't show up in the Market when you searched using your phone.

    ive noticed a lot of apps only work on later versions of the android os, and the market does well by not including incompatible apps from the market
