    I have searched high and low for this answer. After a random reboot, Google Play app is no longer on my machine. I can't seem to find a way to reinstall it. I tried hard reset, factory reset. The app simply isn't there. Anyone have advice? I have ICS as of last night. Thank you.

    Is the Tab Plus on ICS? If so, there should be a little white shopping bag icon in the top right of the App Drawer that launches the Play store. Also, I assume you checked under "P" as it is listed as Play Store, but just figured I would throw it out there.

    I clicked it and nothing happens which again leads me to believe that the program is just not on the tablet any longer. I did check under "p" add well as I thought the same thing.

    While I am looking, can you check this:

    Settings | Apps | All | Google Play Store and make sure haven't disabled it on accident. Bold because in order to avoid confusion google calls it something else in setting than the app drawer:rolleyes:

    Lol! Certainly reason to celebrate recently unlike my hawks. Congrats. I can't thank you enough for the help.

    Update: I did swipe and found all, but still not there. Really weird.

    GUYS!

    I have a HTC Desire and I've had my Google Play App for ages but suddenly it just disappeared and I can't find it anywhere. I called HTC and they said to reset and I did that and android market appeared for about 2 minutes then that disappeared as well. Since the reset, all my apps have gone and every-time I try any way I can to download apps it wont work (tried the web, tried my browser on my phone, nothing)

    PLEASE help, I can't afford a new handset!

    Ash
