    Just curious...I have been using AppBrain based on some reviews and the search options the past couple of days. Recently I went to go and re-download an application that I had on my Moto Droid to my new DX called 'Red Poker Club' (a Texas Hold'em game).

    I was not able to find it by doing a name search on AppBrain. I was able to find it on the regular Market by doing the same name search. Am I missing something in regards to performing a search or it's features? Or does Appbrain just not see everything that Market see's?

    Every once on a while appbrain won't see an app. Particularly if has just been updated, it will usually find it a few hours later.

    Yes, I too frequently run into that. If I'm on my desktop, I first search AppBrain. If I have no luck, I flip over to AndroidZoom.
