    So i've heard that somewhere in the market you can find the apps you've purchased and download them again. Still can't find that. Nor can I find any place that will show me a list of the free apps i had downloaded. not sure if the latter actually exists. anyway, where do i go to find a list of my apps that have synced with google?

    thanks

    I too had the issue where once I updated to 2.1 and visited the Market, I could not see any of my previous downloads.

    Thankfully, I backed up my apps with Astro, but even when I restored, most apps did not install.

    This is probably because most of the apps we had for 1.5 aren't updated to run on 2.1. I tried to search for ChompSMS and a few others, and they cannot be found in the Market for some reason. I think it's just that some of the apps we used aren't updated yet.

    Hell, most of the apps I had previously were crap anyway, so more space on my phone without them! :cool:

    When you open the market hit menu and then downloads. Almost all of my apps showed up there after the update.

    I tried that once I first access the Market after the update, and NOTHING showed up under downloads. It's all good though; half the apps were crap that I downloaded when the phone was new. :cool:

    See, it is a smartphone. It knew you didn't need those apps when it loaded. ;)

    WHen I first hit downloads they were all listed there, once I downloaded an app, and returned to the Downloads screen, only the app I had just downloaded was there, and the rest were gone.

    Gone, I tell you!!
