    I am unable to install any apps from the Amazon App store? They download fine, but installation always fails. I have no problems downloading and installing apps from the Android Marketplace. But the Amazon one fails every time.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    Have you unselected "Unknown Sources" in your Settings > Applications window since installing Amazon App Store? Also, try going into Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and go to Amazon Appstore, then clear data.

    Unknown Sources is allowed, and I have even gone as far as uninstalling the Amazon App Store and reinstalling it, but it doesn't fix it.

    I usually clear the data before uninstalling, because I don't trust the uninstaller to do it. Maybe try a full shutdown, yank battery, count to 10, reboot sort of things? I've never seen an app fail to install.

    I've tried everything.

    I'm not sure if this is related, but I recently upgraded my memory card to a higher capacity. Since then I am having some app issues, such as not being able to install from Amazon App Store, and having some update issues with apps from the Android Market not actually updating on the memory card.

    Did you move apps with "apps2SD" and not move them back before the new card? You might reinstall the App Store (and make sure "unknown sources" is checked). I would uninstall and reinstall anything you're having an issue with to see if that resolves it.

    Actually, I probably didn't move apps back to the phone before changing cards, but would that affect the new Amazon Apps?

    And I've uninstalled everything, reinstalled, and STILL can not install from Amazon App Market. Apps download fine, but fail as soon as they begin installing.
