    So i downloaded the Sirius XM app from their website, then used Astro to find the apk in the downloads folder. I was able to install it and launch it from there.

    I cant not see it under all apps though even though it has been installed and works. I can only access it through Astro.

    How do i get it to show up where all of the other apps are located, do i need to move the file with astro?

    thanks for the help

    When you install an app, a shortcut should automatically appear in the launcher. If it doesn't, you can force close the launcher through Manage Applications or restart your phone.

    thank you very much, i have sideloaded keyboard apks and never had a problem but for whatever reason this sirius app did not create a shortcut.

    i will try what you said and hopefully that should fix it and create a shortcut.

    thanks again for the help
