    Some apps do not show up when I search for them in the Android Market. Does anyone know why this happens on the Droid Eris and is there a way around it?

    Two of the apps that don't appear are:
    Primospot
    NPR Podcasts

    Thanks

    And you had them installed on your Eris previously? I did a search and the Market did not find them, I guess its possible that they are no longer available for the Eris.

    You'd think that Google would have a good search functionality in the market given they are the search king. However, the search function sucks in the market, especially on Android 1.5. So if you want to make sure you find the app you are looking for, download barcode scanner, then google search to find the app you are looking for (outside the market). Locate the barcode for the app and scan it in. You'll be directed to the app. It's the most foolproof way to find the app. Just because you can't find it in the market doesn't mean it's not there.

    I can't get ANY bar code apps to work on 2D codes. UPC codes work fine. What's the trick? On all pgms the camera tries to focus multiple times but NEVER lock on to the code. Help.
     
  6. Another app missing from the Eris' market is the Elite (pay) version of WeatherBug. I've been in contact with them and they say they are aware of the issue and are working to get it fixed, but they don't know when that might be. The free (ad-supported) version shows up just fine.

    Weatherbug???? eBuddy???? Phhhht:p Remedial applications, at best.;) Let's talk about a highly critical search engine app ...

    Beer Hero is supposed to be in the Market and is not. I even did the search through my desktop, found the barcode, scanned it in and got the ole "Could not find"

    What exact app are folks using to scan the 2D codes? Every one I've tried on the Hero and Eris do not work. Gotta be operator error but I can can get the UPC scan mode to work perfectly with the same apps. Help....

    ok where do you find the 2d barcodes for the apps
     
  13. Guys (and gals): Check your Market. This issue appears to be fixed. I saw a note about this being fixed in the Hero forums, and thought I'd check my phone (an Eris) just by chance. SURE ENOUGH, it has! There were 3 apps I could not find before and now they exist. I searched for some of the apps posted in this thread that people were not able to find and I can find them all now.

    They definitely added a lot of stuff I've been using the market a lot and noticed many new goodies.

    I don't think it's as much added as whatever problem that prevented certain non 2.0 devices from seeing apps was fixed.
     
  23. Correct! :)

    Just looked for Google inc apps and there's 2 missing plus search by voice has been gone for awhile.

    If you have the free one installed, open it, press menu and press "Upgrade to Elite". This takes you to the app in the marketplace.
