Default Just lost my "Market" app

I just lost my "Market" App, the one where I bought Titanium Backup & PowerAmp from, downloaded the free Angry Birds from. It just disappeared from my screen and when I tap to see all the aps, it's not there either.

Not so good... Any idea how I might get it back?

Thanks

Android market has been renamed to "play shop" (it sounds very silly) . Try to check apps whether you see an app named "play shop" .that is the new market...

Oh jeez... Yup there is is, play store... You got it right. They must have changed yesterday, at least that's when I noticed it. Now it wants me to OK Google Play, Google music, google books and YouTube rentals...

Considering how Google has now changed their terms of service to track and merge any info from what I do & go, I'm not so sure I want to go along with this. I don't like being spied on if I do anything connected to Google.

Rats... Guess I'll be done with using it.

Any different way to find/buy aps using paypal?

Thanks

You can try alternative markets like amazon,getjar or slideme.org . Or you can contact a devloper individually .

Android market (play store .....) is all about convenience imo .

You can have following setting changes to locate the app market icon to the homescreen

use file manager

Opened ASTRO, clicked Up
navigate to /system/app
Locate Vending.apk
push on it to install it, clicked ok etc
Now back on home screen....

Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications
Chose All
Find Market
Push on it and select Clear data
go back to main home screen, turn your phone off and back on

thread had been solved already besides the market isnt an app within the phone after it updates to the play store. the app becomes the play store
