    I was thinking it might be to do with the copy protected apps not yet being available. But none of the other Google apps have this. So I'm beginning to wonder if its a location thing..

    It doesn't seem to be location, so its either device specific or copy protected..

    A lot of people on the app complained about it not working on their 2.1 android device so they may have pulled it from the 2.1 market place

    It has gone missing, I downloaded it when I first got the phone. Uninstalled now because it's pretty crappy.

    It has 3D view doesn't it? So you can tilt the view and the landscape will be realistically hilly. I imagine this gives poor performance and eats battery life but it's there if you want it. Only the landscape is 3D, not buildings.

    I installed it using that apk yesterday... downloaded it direct to my phone, and installed without using astro file manager.

    Shame it doesn't have the zoomable sky of the desktop version, but pretty nifty all the same.

    That installed and runs fine for me, thank you. It's rather fiddly and not very practical but it is a fun novelty. When my phone's memory is filled ... not long now ... it and it's 22.48MB installation will be about the first to go.
