    Can someone confirm whether weatherbug elite is in their 2.1 market. I never backed it up when I upgraded and now it can't be found in the market.

    Thanks

    I think a free app can also be "protected."

    These "protected" apps will not show up until the Marketplace officially gets the new Eris update information. Which means, until VZW sends out the official update, you'll need to stick your head out the window to get the weather.

    Just because it isn't on the Market, doesn't mean you can't download it from somewhere else.

    While I don't have an issue at all with people who choose to pirate high-priced software from big corporations, stealing smartphone software from a small-business developer seems like kind of a sleazy way to save a couple of bucks. But people do it all the time, and it's pretty easy to find that stuff.

    That said, though, I lose some respect for developers who copy-protect their apps, because it restricts my ability to make a backup ... and it doesn't do a bit of good anyway, if you look at the piracy sites. So I had no issue at all with finding "backup" copies of those paid-for apps for my use until the final 2.1 is released.

    The maddening thing, though, is that I had a couple of FREE apps (Analogy clock, A Online Radio) that disappeared from the store when I upgraded due to their copy protection. And since they were free, no one ever bothered to pirate them. Why would a developer copy-protect a free app??

    Hypothetically, where would a person find these pirated apps? :)

    I agree with you. The cost of these apps is very little and pirating them is just silly. If someone can't afford to pay a dollar or two for an app in the market, what are they doing with the phone in the first place.

    All that being said, I already paid for one of these and didn't have any problem with downloading the key until the working one comes back into the market. I have to be able to edit and create spread sheets for work.

    Just wanted to go on record that I asked that question because I already paid for it and it's not in the market since I upgraded to 2.1.

    While I understand your reason for doing it and have no problem with that, you will have to search on Google. It is a violation of the forum rules to give you a link to anything that might be considered pirated material.
