    I recently loaded an update to the Bedside (Night Clock) paid application. The shortcut I had on my Android desktop changed from the bed icon to a gear icon. I dragged the gear icon to the trash with the intention of re-adding the bed icon from the all programs screen. Sadly, there is no entry for Bedside on the All Programs screen! :eek:

    I can run the program using many clicks by going to Market > My Downloads > Bedside > Open. Is there a way to add an installed app into the All Programs screen without root? Note: if I long click on the desktop and try to add an app, Bedside also doesn't show up in the resulting list. It is installed because I can run it through Market. I have considered uninstalling and reinstalling but am unsure if I will be charged again.

    Anyone else run into this type of problem? :thinking:

    Sounds like your apps index is not synced....

    If it has more than 24 hours since you bought the app ..then you can safely uninstall the app then reinstall it from the Market ... doing this will refresh and fix the apps index ...

    Program will then show in the apps tray and you can create Desktop Shortcut to it in your chosen method (drag from tray OR long-press destop)
